SS14 Top Trends – Shawna Simpson
On this season’s runway, everyday outfits were injected with a little shot of glamour thanks to the new twist on the metallic trend.
Seen on the runway at Christopher Kane and Rochas, metallic were tempered with subdued tones to create confection-like dresses. 3.1 Phillip Lim showed metallic’s in unexpected colours, like blue and rust, but with an unpolished edge.
Givenchy, Tom Ford and Altuzarra all stuck to their high-glam guns, presenting full shine looks and warmer palettes of oranges and reds.
Lanvin, Dolce and Gabana, Gucci and Saint Laurent kept things restrained by playing down the sex appeal of the sequins with more modest silhouettes. Long hemlines, long sleeves and high collars throughout the shows meant a more daytime friendly approach to metallic’s.
