Izzy Stocks Blogs on Metallic Mania.
Metalwork had a note-worthy influence on the Spring/Summer ’13 catwalks, with many a designer providing luminescent fabrics for the sun to bounce off beautifully. While sweet-toothed Christopher Kane went stylishly OTT with his Quality Street inspired trenches and two pieces at Burberry Prorsum, Raf Simmons embraced the beauty of iridescent organza at Dior. Chloé modernised their girlish ruffles and light-as-air chiffons and silks with a glossy lacquer that appeared on coordinating, hibiscus-printed tees and skirts.
We love Dior and Chloé’s combinations of sheen and florals- flowers keep the look dainty while metallics themselves say bang-on-trend. Our Floral Jacquard Metallic Dress will have you looking as polished and pretty by night as model Karlie Kloss in her Calvin Klein, liquid metal mini. For a day-time garden party, our metallic jacquard floral bolero jacket could be balanced with jeans, a nude cami and silver sandals for a pretty yet understated aesthetic.
Silver threading, beads and sequins count as part of the metallic fever, as showcased at Nina Ricci S/S’13. If you’re an avid fan of The Great Gatsby, you’ll adore playing Daisy Buchanan in our Art Deco Embellished Tunic Dress. Whatever you do, shine bright this coming summer!
