Trend Report SS2013: Shimmer & Shine
Burberry, Dior, Comme des Garcons, Diane von Furstenberg, Jonathan Saunders, Viktor & Rolf; all major fashion houses that presented shiny summer collection. From gold and silver to colorful metallic and nacre coatings; it was all shimmer and shine on this season’s runways. Of course those floor length V&R and Dior skirts are not really suited for your average day at the office. But most designers managed to make metallics look very suitable for wearing on any given day. Tank tops, pencil skirts, loose blouses and tailored jackets all got the shine treatment (whether it being made of sequins or just a nacre layer) and were worn with minimal embellishments. The looks breathed optimism, future and festivity and we can’t help but feel happy while scrolling through those images. With this trend we go from the office straight to any fashion party in the same look and still turn heads. Now who doesn’t like that?
