Metallic and holographic trend in fashion
High shine metallic and holographic finishes are the fairest of them all this season
Fashion is in a reflective mood this season, with an abundance of high-shine metallic and holographic finishes. At Jonathan Saunders, holographic bomber jackets, skirts and striped dresses appeared out of the industrial gloom of The Tanks at Tate Modern. Teamed with over-sized sunglasses and wet-look lips, this lady was electric.
At Burberry Prorsum, too, jewel coloured foils sharply cut into shirts, printed skirts and dresses made it seem like Christopher Bailey had shaken the wrappers of a tin of Quality Streets throughout his spring collection. A memorable finale saw a veritable pick and mix of colourful raincoats – including the purple men's version that Romeo Beckham has since immortalised – with colour-clashed sunglasses and clear Perspex bags. Off the catwalks and into the real world, brands are getting in on the act with coloured and holographic foils cut into T-shirts, dresses and even skirts. A youthful way to wear the look gives casual separates – pleated mini-skirts, T-shirts and tank tops – a high-voltage update. Teaming these with bold colours or textures shows commitment to a look – but keeping things simple with jeans and jersey is a more measured way to work the trend.
As is common with more outré ideas, accoutrements are a great way to give a subtle nod to the edge-pushing. Traditional metallics of silver, bronze and gold have been stories in the accessories world for a while and will continue for spring. Stilettos, sandals and more mannish flats have all been given a dip in the molten stuff while flashes of holographic details earn extra style points.
