Metallics are slithering into this season and I have been keeping my magpie eyes on some of my favourite pieces. Feeling like Gollum before the Ring That Rules Them All, these shimmering pieces make me want to scream : My precious! What is it about metallics that bring about this hysteria? To me , it is evoking a feeling of a bygone era of shiny luxury ; imagining cutting the dancefloor carelessly at studio 54 in gold lamé, bitch fights on Dynasty and 90s supermodels in Versace. It is the way they make anything else worn with it more exciting, be that a plain white t-shirt or an otherwise black outfit. No wonder designers still haven't tired of it! Here are the pieces on my wishlist now...
1. Alexander Wang Sweatshirt
2. Altuzarra skirt
3. Gianvito Rossi flats
4. Dion Lee skirt
5. Michael Van Der Ham skirt
6. Versace necklace
7. Givenchy slides
8. Valentino clutch
9. Gianvito Rossi mules
10.Gianvito Rossi sandals
12. Givenchy sandals
13. Saint Laurent dress
Gold, silver and all the metallic hues of the rainbow are reigning supreme again this season. Designers have made use of 21st century fabrics to accentuate curves and create shimmering silhouettes that feel giddily decadent. From space age silver to molten sheaths of gold and Dynasty lamé redux, shimmer has infiltrated every trend from vintage cool to far-out futuristics á la The Jetsons
Ra meets 50's wiggle vixen in this all gold ensamble that feels like gilded heaven to wear ( Dolce & Gabbana dress, shoes, bag and earrings )
Spun silver and gleaming gold shine under the hot Australian sun ( Dolce & Gabbana earrings, Ellery top)
Poisonous green meets oxidised silver for a relaxed but utterly chic take on the trend ( Rebecca Valance skirt, Isabel Marant top from Belinda, After the Apple bag, Asos shoes, Megan Park bracelets )
