A little sparkle goes a long way, so make sure you stack up on some shiny pieces for SS2017. Add a little disco to your #ootd. Opt for metallic (Haider Ackermann, Balmain), choose for sequins (Kenzo, Gucci, Marc Jacobs) or wow in crystal beads (Proenze Schouler). Taking the trend a little further you can of course add some shimmer in the shape of jewelry (Kenzo) and make-up too (eyes and nails deserve some extra spark too). Oh and of course then there are Gucci’s crystal encrusted glasses. What ever you do, don’t hold back. Shine on and, for everyone who’s looking; make it worth their while.

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?

Catwalktrend FW2010: All that glitters…

After so many season of hearing navy or grey being the new black, this year’s new black comes as a surprise. Gold is the new black for 2010/2011. Though it’s not a very common color for winter, it certainly is a big trend.

It popped up at Balmain, Moschino, Gaultier, Dolce & Gabbana and Pucci. At Balmain it matched perfectly with the whole baroque-theme and all the purple.

Moschino combined it with black. Rosella Jardini designed a golden fringe coat and decorated a black one with lots of golden (ear)rings.

Dolce & Gabbana showed golden headphones for your i-Pod and used small golden coins as emrbroideries on their clothes.

Donatella Versace mixed all kinds of metallics in her collection. Even her pants and bags had metallic pieces on them.

So, everyone saying gold looks cheap and trashy should keep their mouths shot for at least half a year. Cause it’s the trend. And even if it’s fake, it’s still fashionable.

For the winter of 2010 all that glitters IS gold.
