After seeing over 5 shows at NYFW this season, it’s safe to say that I’ve observed some consistent themes, and my favorite by far has to be the rise of chromes and metallics. Buckle up, guys, we’re taking a trip back in time to metallics of the 90’s, but time, it’s bigger. brighter. and better.
Versatility, vibrancy, and vivaciousness are the three descriptors I have come up with after viewing the colorful and oversized metallic/chrome jackets, as well as the discotheque-inspired sparkly-chrome dresses at Custo Barcelona.
(check out the rest of the Custo Barcelona collection here on my Pinionate channel!)
Even Australian designer Bronx and Banco debuted a gorgeous metallic-effect sequined mini dress in a pretty shade of purple.
Yet, it seems like using sequins to achieve an overall metallic sheen wasn’t exclusive to designer Bronx and Banco. Another Australian label, Eliatt, showed us what real color mixed with sequins looked like. Do you think this effect could be deemed metallic as well?
Even if you’re answer is no, the shoes on this model totally nailed a purple metallic vibe.
For a trend that we usually see in the winter time, I’m quite excited to see how people start pulling off sequined and/or metallic dresses and articles in the spring. Among this trend, others I saw were the pairing of pastels with brighter colors, along with the resurfacing of the colors deep purple and dark teal. And, I’m just going to plug this in real quick, I TOTALLY saw the teal trend for SS19 coming. (see my blog post from last week here). Anyways, I hope this served as your quick fix for staying up to date on SS19 trends!
