Just click through the Dries van Noten, Prada and Gucci catwalk images and you know brocade is in style. The richer the materials the better the look. Minimalism couldn’t be further away. The more ornate the better. All that glitters are coats (Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Prada), sequined tops (Dries van Noten) and embroidered velvet dresses (Roberto Cavalli). Once worn to convey social status in places like Byzantium, China, and Italy, this fall you’re wearing these luxurious pieces to convey your sense of style! Downdress your brocade look with some denim and a crispy white Tee to add some street chic appeal. Or just follow Gucci’s example and go all the way with some expensive oversize square-frame rhinestone sunglasses, a turban and fur sleeves.
