A/W 17 Trend Report - Space Silver

Whilst metallic's for Fall are nothing new, I mean who doesn't love to wear a shimmery little number during party season?, this Fall metallic's have a distinct space age feel to them. After seeing countless designers embracing this theme during fashion month, Chanel pulled out all the stops and quite literally constructed a NASA worthy set inside the Grand Palais in Paris. If there was ever any doubt as to whether or not this trend would catch on, our doubts were instantly quashed. Silver was seen on many different silhouettes and several different fabrics: leather, plisse, chainmail, quilting, sequins - you name it the designers worked with it. Balenciaga and Christopher Kane opted for super modern tech fabrics, the later also incorporating an iridescent finish. Saint Laurent and Gucci went for silver mesh, creating a somewhat more revealing approach to the trend. Going all out on this trend, Comme des Garcons and Chanel showcased over the top quilted jackets - delivering standout pieces with maximum impact that were impossible to miss.
