Valentine's Day isn't just for lovers. A new flock of celebrities and fashion brands have joined forces to create capsule collections to elevate your wardrobe to a new level. Here's a look at the latest fashion trends emerging for 2021.

Yrsa Daley-Ward & H&M
Poet model and actor Yrsa Daley-Ward has partnered with H&M for a comfortable capsule collection, in which she also appears as the face of the campaign. "It has been wonderful working with H&M on this sustainably-sourced collection," states Daley-Ward. "My hope is that this collection comforts, empowers and moves those who wear it, that they wear the words close to their hearts. We need to be empowered to have the strength and confidence to move through the world and to achieve our dreams. You are your life's work."

CLOT x Polo Ralph Lauren
Edison Chen's Hong Kong-based streetwear label CLOT has found synergy with American label Ralph Lauren for a collection that honors his Chinese heritage with frog button closures and Silk Royale shirt lining.

Tan France x EyeBuyDirect
'Queer Eye' co-host Tan France hopes to see green with the launch of his branded collection "that empowers you to find glasses to complement your personal style, age, face shape and skin tone," according to the online retailer.

Dior x Stussy
Honoring the Year of the Ox, Dior engaged artist Shawn Stussy for a collection that includes graphic sweaters, low-tip trainers, zipped overshirts and leather shoulder bags.

The North Face x Gucci
Taking glamping to an entirely new level, luxury brand Gucci has partnered with the outdoor experts at The North Face for this flashy (though questionably practical) collection of high-impact garments and gear.

Drake's NOCTA x Nike
Nike isn't new to tapping big names to catapult their products. Michael Jordan earned $219 in 2019 alone, Forbes reports. Now rapper Drake is on the action, with his new sub-label NOCTA collection. "NOCTA is about creating something for people on the move," says Drake. "People who want functional, comfortable fits that are adaptable from one environment to the next."

Simone Rocha x H&M
London-based Irish designer Simone Roche brings her signature style to H&M's global reach with a collection that features accessible pieces for the whole family. The designer's signature details, such as tartan tailoring, cable knits, and beaded shirting, will be featured throughout the collection in a cream, pink, red, and black palette.

Harris Reed x MAC Cosmetics
Celebrity stylist Harris Reed, who famously put Harry Styles in a dress in 2019, joins forces with MAC Cosmetics for a glam rock collection launching this March. "We write our own stories. And the day has finally come - I've done it all for that little kid and all the others out there. This is about defining what you look like to the world," wrote Reed in an Instagram post announcing the collection.

A$AP Rocky's AWGE x Amina Muaddi
Move over, power suit: the power shoe is the new game in town. Rapper A$AP Rocky's creative agency, AWGE, has partnered with luxury shoe designer Amina Muaddi for a versatile collection with plenty of bling. Muaddi shared styling tips with Vogue. "The gladiator is something that you could wear with something short: a skirt or a dress," says Muaddi. "The shoe with the butterfly, you can wear it with anything from jeans to a gown because it's very versatile. It's very elegant, but it can be dressed down or dressed up in so many ways."

Converse x Rick Owens DRKSHDW
The Converse high-top gets a wild makeover thanks to Rick Owens with the DRKSHDW collaboration that pulls from Owens' modern minimalism. "When I see something ubiquitous, I feel like I want to distort it. I don't know what that's about. Maybe it's some kind of adolescent rage. But that's one of the greatest appeals of the Chuck Taylor All Star," says Owens.
