After bodysuits and flowy gowns, there was just one essential missing – An armour! With all the metal hues of gold & silver, this trend brings in the new princess attire.
Binge on all things metallic this season, without a care in the world! The new solid shade for all-things-glamourous, the sparkle ain’t too much this season. So if you’re about the sparkle, this is the season for you. With a new take on 80’s melted gold and silver looks, it’s all about a futuristic goddess look. The armour for the powerful woman, saving the world.
In case you missed it, Jean-Paul Gaultier presented his final show, bidding farewell to a 50-year career with his Spring 2020 collection. And he did so with a spectacle! Bringing back metallic pants and corsets, it was an ode to the armours of today. Balenciaga, on the other hand, took a more feminine route, with bows, ball gowns and thigh-high slits (talk about a party attire).
Since Dior was all about women ruling the world, the ramp goddesses had the perfect golden touch going on for them. In gladiator-style fringe outfits and Lamé fabric’s patchwork skirts and pantsuits, there was a whole lotta gold combined with modern silhouettes. Paco Rabanne picked up silver as his colour of choice and added textures and prints for the perfect Disco look. All matched up with printed boots and white shoes too.
Oscar de la Renta called for the Goddess-inside with flowy gowns and pleated textures. The highlight? Ashley Graham’s Vogue cover shoot that definitely made her seem like a Goddess, hands down. Balmain and Christian Siriano too added a modern touch to this trend with skirts, tights, holographic coats and whatnots. JW Anderson was an amalgamation of gold and silver with patchwork dresses and pantsuits, while Julien Macdonald redefined skimpy with feathers, fringes and halter-necks. Talk about combining summer and metallic!
