Shine bright like a diamond

Published on 19th Apr 2018 at 14:00 by Kate

It’s hard to know when the first metallic trend started, because in the 1930’s, metallic fabrics were used to create evening gowns for a Hollywood Glamour style, and this trend continued on in the 1940’s and 1950’s with metallic leather jackets or evening dresses. 

However, it’s in the 70’s with the disco era, that people started wearing shiny clothes on an every day basis, following the trend of the ABBA group, who loved to wear shimmering clothes. After that, metallic clothes have been seen on catwalks in 2000, 2009, and 2013, starting from S/S collection, to A/W ones, metallic pieces were becoming a style statement. In the world of fashion, history and trends are constantly repeating themselves. So it was no surprise when we saw the come back of the metallic trend in 2017’s A/W collections, and now S/S catwalks.From Paco Rabanne to Michael Kors, metallic pieces are definitely IN this season.
