In 2016, we’ve seen how silver- and gold metallic accessories, shoes and ultimately clothing become an undeniable trend, after labels such as Calvin Klein and Dsquared2 or designers like Christopher Kane and Katie Eary made a nod to the ‘60s Space Age in their fall/winter’16 runway shows.
At the same time, the spring/summer’17 collection of Saint Laurent, under the tenure of newly-arrived creative director Anthony Vaccarello, confirmed that the potential of sexy lame dresses in womenswear and other ‘80s fashion inspired garments was high.
Logically, several denim- and contemporary brands took well note of the movement towards gleam. Just looking at the first images for the fall/winter’17 collection, you could definitely tell that the trend has a long life to run for leather- and bomber jackets.
Metallic optics are also set to take over women jeans and embellishments on jackets and pants.
Unusual shiny treatments applied on fabrics such as corduroy won’t be an uncommon practice, neither.
