One of the latest articles in nymag.com was dedicated to a very important, not-for-the-faint-at-heart Spring trend . Coloured metallics. The author of this publication Rebecca Ramsey, a strong believer in female’s natural attraction for all things that gleam, stated:”… shades of gold and silver can feel tired after heavy reliance, so when lustrous shades of pink, sapphire, and red hit the spring runways of Burberry Prorsum, Derek Lam, and Jonathan Saunders, our search for something that would pack some punch into an outfit was over.”
This trend was imported to us from London, fashion capital where words salable and wearable always sounded as nonsense and designers carried on making extraordinary clothes.
With the help of Asos.com, UK’s largest online-only fashion retailer, iridescent creations became available to US consumer. Combined with always sensible denim, button-downs and T-shirts multifaceted metallic garments were marketed by seasoned merchants under the slogan:” Sci-Fi Goes Street”. For “going street” without going overboard look Asos added assortment of reflective lighthearted accessories (shoes, bags, belts) that could be used as accent pieces in any wardrobe.
P.S As a professional I am to inform people about tendencies in fashion.Sometimes I neglect very important thing: my personal opinion.
Here it comes.I do not like metallics of any shade.They are great only for flamboyant-bingo-playing-Floridian retirees(with all due respect for seniors) , clueless kids who are having way too much fun or stage performers from Vegas .For me personally it is one of those "HELL NO"" trends that should be disregarded completely despite the fact that it came from one of most exciting cities in the world,London.My personal verdict :"What happens in London,stays in London".
