Collars aren’t going anywhere in 2021

At Olivia Annabelle, our love of oversized statement collars is no secret – a key feature across all of our collections. And in a year when we’ve been stuck in front of a camera on Zoom in bedrooms, corridors and kitchens, a statement collar gives an instant upgrade to your WFH looks (even with your pyjama bottoms underneath!)

And it’s not just within the home that we’ve seen the celebration of the neckline this year – from Harry Styles’ Vogue shoot to Emma Corrin’s Princess Diana, the statement collar has been everywhere in 2020.

The style’s timeless appeal is evident in its return to the British fashion scene in almost every decade of the past century. It’s popularity first exploded back in 1905 with the production of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. The lead’s costume, that of Maude Adams, consisted of tight trousers and a white blouse with a big, wide collar. The style proved an instant hit in America, and subsequently Britain, and little wonder! It’s also where the name ‘Peter Pan Collar’ comes from! In the words of Strictly Come Dancing’s Craig Revel Horwood FAB-U-LOUS.
