Whenever the state of the world we’re living in becomes dispiriting, designers often look to outer space for inspiration and who can blame them?
Space-inspired references have been scattered across the runways for several seasons now, but this time around flashes of metallic made it more tangible than ever before.
High impact, high shine metallic silver is hitting the runways and while the color is reminiscent of ’60s futurism a la Pierre Cardin, the shapes are far more approachable.
But if all this you think will make you look like a baked potato-Fear Not. You can inject your wardrobe with some high-shine metallic in a less loud way
- Without doubt, the easiest way to embrace this trend is with a new handbag, so ditch your trusty black carryall in favour of something silver, but don’t go overboard on the shine as this has the potential to look cheap
- Alternatively, shoes are another great entry point with everything from trainers and disco-ready flatforms to skyscraper stilettos available in space-inspired hues
