12 Ways To Turn Up The Metallic Trend

From as early as the Byzantine era in the 7th century to the glittering debutante costumes of the Bright Young Things from the 1920s, metallic textiles have always been the choice for opulence and grandeur. Flash forward to Spring/Summer 2020, and the shimmering trend has never been more primed for all you shiny happy people who like fashion spelled with a capital F. Here, our list of how designers are doing it and the pieces you can cop.

The Pieces To Buy

At Balenciaga: A ballgown as voluminous as a Hershey's Kisses wrapped in tin foil.
At Acne Studios: A 'distressed' duster coat that comes with an aged patina.
At Saint Laurent: A touch of Ali Baba chic in the form of golden harem pants.
At Chanel: Super pretty in the shade of rosé (like the wine).
At Dries Van Noten: Dramatic and almost floor-gazing, in the form of an opera coat.
At Halpern: Two words – Studio 54.
At Helmut Lang: Playing with layers like a new take on the three-piece ensemble – in this case a etallic tank top, matching skirt and pants.
At JW Anderson: Dripping in gold from head-to-toe.
At Prada: Pulling out the perfect "birthday" suit. (PS. Gold represents celebration).
At Area: A pair of made-for-Coachella jeans.
At Tibi: Giving utilitarian cargo pants a futuristic edge.
At Rochas: Gunmetal + Gold. The same way we like to combine jewellery.
