Chanel’s AW17 aesthetic was very “let’s send grandma to outer space in couture”. The tweed, the overly-60s beauty look, and the legitimate friggin ROCKET that blasted off at the end of the show were all a little much for reality, but for a fashion show closing what seemed like a particularly in-your-face-statement-making fashion month, it was perfect. More so, for me it legitimized wearing silver and glitter with the reckless abandon of a disco ball. Because if Karl Lagerfeld OK’d it, it’s bible.
Which is a good thing, because as of recently I’ve been seeing silver. It’s battling it out on the streets of New York with white for the throwback shoe shade of the moment, and last weekend on a night out I saw a woman dressed in a skintight silver lamé concoction as if she were at an 80s-themed frat party. These are mad times we’re living in! MAD!
So seeing as effectively draping yourself in trendy aluminum is all the rage these days, I thought I’d dedicate a spot on this esteemed journalistic outlet (mmmHMM) to this particular trend. Behold, some great lüqs I unearthed down the rabbit hole of Pinterest, and also some shoppable options for your perusal incase you think your wardrobe could stand to look a little flashier.
Put it this way: at least now your friends will be able to locate you at the bar. It’s the fringe benefits I’m after.
