The Room Fall 2017: Shine On
Take the party to the street with daytime metallics and crystal statement pieces.
A delightful glam streak ran through the Fall 2017 runways, and it was anything but serious. Mixing shiny pieces with casual daywear is a fun-forward way to enter the colder seasons, and gives styles previously relegated to cocktail lighting their moment in the sun.
Trend/insights expert Carly Stojsic (@incarlyveritas) has this to offer, “As lines also blur from athleisure to evening wear, I think the best execution is to layer shiny pieces with traditionally mundane daywear. Confining shine to the night is redundant: Freshen your daytime looks with a little Miss Havisham glam!”
Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio, the Milanese design duo behind Attico (shown above), packed their Fall collection full of glittery 20th century references, making it a “collection that glowed with joyfully creative, decorative lustiness: Happy clothes in which to be seen,” according to Vogue’s Luke Leitch.
The crystal-covered whimsy of a Judith Lieber minaudière will dial up the fun of any look in a big way. Grab it for your next grocery store trip and turn some heads.
Fashion bloggers Cailli and Sam Beckerman (@beckermanblog) give this styling advice, “Our favorite thing for the season is a metallic bag and shiny everything! Down to shiny glittery makeup. We think it looks best mixed with a vintage pair of Levi’s! The silver surfer!”
Designer John Galliano presented a collection made up of deconstructed layered looks in a signature Maison Margiela palette of nudes and metallics for Fall 2017. In his review for Business of Fashion, critic Tim Blanks points to “Maison Margiela’s enduring fascination with Las Vegas” as a point of inspiration that provides an easy starting point for no-holds-barred styling.
Blurring the lines between “occasion” and “everyday” gives your glamourous pieces a life you may not have imagined, and serves as a reminder to everyone you meet that fashion is still, in fact, fun.
