March 9, 2018:
METALLIC FINISHES


The Metallics trend kicked off with the 2016 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute exhibition, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” has matured for Spring 2018.  Characterized by lighter, more transparent finishes compared to the bolder Space Age slick chromium shines, bright golds, burnished bronzes, and grittier pewters that debuted by many designers several seasons back, the latest looks translate well for both day career pieces, and more romantic occasion wear.  While the last couple of seasons have included fashion dripping with sheets of sequins and bold lamé, rich metallic embroideries, and jacquards for both evening and baroque daywear, along with quirkier Steampunk inspired hardware trims such as grommets, the newest pieces include fabrics with softer metallic dips and hand. 

Knits of shimmer kissed fabrics in an assortment of pastels, dipped rainbow ombrés, and classic spring hues are using fiber technologies speaking to subtler translations of the museum exhibition's ideas.  Stiffer textiles such as tulle and linen may be sprinkled with fairy dust sheens, or bathed in pale gold, platinum, and silver metallic wash effects on both solids and patterns achieved through advanced processing technologies.

Many of these more sophisticated looks are more understated and accessible to a wider range of wardrobe tastes. Career wear can include pieces such as metallic finished jackets or trousers, shimmering knit dresses and tops, and crystal pleated skirts.  More romantic looks will include sheer frosted netting, lace, and tulles with evening pieces still leaning more toward bolder metallic fabrics. Sometimes combining with the gleaming satins also coming into style, expect to see more examples of hidden luxury design elements such as silver satin jacket linings in upscale modern classics as the trend continues to move forward.
