In Burberry Prorsum Spring '13: vogue
And so here we are in this fast-paced world that has undeniably affected the fashion industry. Where runway shows are now streamed live around the planet, fashion buys are just a few clicks away and backstage photos are easier to get a hold of that ever before. With so much going some designers go for the shock value to stand out (I love this collection as much as the next person, but you have to agree that Alexander Wang spring 2013 had some shock value to it). While other designers go with the overall mood of the future we now live in: holographic and metallics.
We may be bringing back some of that 70s disco vibe but this time it is allot more modern. Adding to that, back then, people would go for this trend to shine on the disco floor, whereas nowadays fashion forward (and quite brave) ladies opt for metallics to bring out that elegance and glamour in them.
So lets talk about the some of the spring designer looks which added to this futuristic extravaganza.
Iridescent vibrant fabrics were the perfect addition to these looks above. At Diane Von Furstenberg we saw the use of glitter, one of the most classic way to glamorise any outfit. While at Burberry, we let the fabric do the talking. A marvellous combination: simple and clean lines, paired with lustrous fabric. Emphasizing the cut and voluminous peplum shape of this Aquilano Rimondi dress the coloured metallic was a great touch.
Keeping it as glamorous as possible at Versace with this sequinned flock with bold shoulders. With very simple and clean lines at Jonathan Saunders, the holographic fabric takes centre stage. And this head-to-toe metallic look by Nina Ricci is such a simple but great upgrade to the blouse and pencil skirt combination.
So how do you feel about this trend?
