Shimmer, shine and sparkle – Fashion week Paris picks

Shimmer-shine-and-sparkle-–-Fashion-week-Paris-picks-200x300

Glossy or luminescent clothes have always been viewed with contempt, and have been the butt of many jokes

all year round.And the fact that they first made an appearance in the 1900s make it a very unappealing trend to try out. It’s really tough to wear them a la Madonna or Sher, and that is one fad that’s never coming back.

But this week Paris shimmered, shone and sparkled blindingly in what is being hailed as the bold new futuristic edge of fashion. Designers used metallic hues and gold in a various shades and grainings; the result was a look to die for- The re-incarnation of gleaming radiance.

Jackets add to the look, and they don’t have to always be in the same hues.

You’ll notice that there is a requirement to use shoes in the same plastic hues. You can’t skimp on that.

But the metals and plastics are definitely getting a makeover from the dumpy frumpy step sister to the belle of the ball.

The artists I’ve featured include Saint Laurent, Giambattista Valli, Chanel, Valentino, Georges Chakra, Lanvin, Graveravens, Shiatzy Chen, Balmain, Paco Rabanne, Iris Van Herpen, Alexandre Vauthier, Alexander McQueen, Masha Ma and many more. For those of you who really want to step up your game, live updates to the Paris fashion week can be found on nowfashion.com.

I’m not going to feature the guy’s trends, but I’ll say this, nothing is hotter than a renegade in a candy striped jacket! The guys’ looks from the shows were reminiscent of chocolate wrappers; which means minimalist and monochrome are not the only ways to play safe. Go ahead and try out different looks; the stripes did make a small statement again this week, along with dull greys that deflected the overly electronic-ish look the metals gave the girls.

Oh and stockings compliment the one pieces if you’re looking to steal all attention with an arrestingly short body-hugging strapless dress and boots.

Nothing highlights the alien beauty of metal attire better than cat smoky eyes. And leather textured tan nail polish.

Here’s to a `spark, crackle and bedazzle’-ing fashion week!!!
