Metallics: The Essence is Iridescence


Up until quite recently one of my friends still bore the brunt of jokes about her dedication to wearing iridescent clothing (pretty much exclusively) between the ages of 15 and 17. I have recently stopped joking about it, called her up, and asked her to root out some of such items. Metallics is obviously a huge trend for 2013, but within this lies the micro trend, otherwise known as my new obsession...IRIDESCENT.

It cropped its shiny head up a couple of times in 2012, Louis V dabbled, while Blumarine went whole hog in their Cara Delevingne campaign.  Recently the trend has really gotten in to the zeitgeist with Stella McCartney’s swoonful holographic clutch selling out, and a waiting list for Miista iridescent brogues.

A little metallic inspo...






Although the iridescent trend is being tagged as ‘futuristic’, due to the gas memories I have of it, to me it is uber 90’s in a Shampoo kinda way. Remember them?!
