When it comes to shine, nobody did it better than Ziggy Stardust, David Bowie’s concocted 70s alter ego who pranced around the stage in his otherworldly glam rock outfits, dancing straight into the world’s most cherished fashion memories. Blame it on David’s untimely death but his legacy lives on this season because lurex is once again king of the OS catwalks with designers such as Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, Pucci, Jil Sander, Missoni and many others reviving the glittery fabric in all it’s fabulous incarnations. Closer to home, designers have been utilising high tech fabrics and intricate metallic weaving into eye popping incarnations of the trend; across footloose and fancy free maxis, trophy evening wear or classic tailoring, the innovative ways of incorporating gleaming concoctions are as beautiful as they are impressive. Here is the run down of my favourite looks to buy now and covet forever

Mesh grows up – this top is in fact made of super fine shimmering beading which makes you feel more princess than punk ( Rachel Gilbert top, bustier and pants)
MELSHINE3
Possessing high octave shimmer this dress is best with tough boots for 90s grunge or heels for a take on the 70s with a touch of Game of Thrones medievalism ( Zimmermann dress, Gucci heels , Valentino headband)
MELSHINE6
Metallic thread lace plus pretty flickering sequins coexist in this dress combining shift simplicity with mermaid magic ( Zimmermann dress)
Beauty note: Armani Luminous Silk foundation, Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze& Glow in Light to Medium, Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Ibiza on top of cheekbones and lips, Loreal False Lash superstar mascara, By Terry eyebrow liner in brown
