WEIGH YOURSELF DOWN IN FASHION’S FAVOURITE SHADE OF POLISHED METAL
By: Bridget Barnett
When it comes to spring colour palettes, designers typically stick to the usual suspects of pastels, brights and florals. But this season, designers are injecting a heavy dosage of something a whole lot richer – gold – declaring lustrous shoes and accessories are here to stay.
Lacquered coats of metallic gold adorn evening shoes from the likes of Aquazzura and Marco de Vincenzo, equally luscious are the spiral sandals from Y/Project. Meanwhile, keep a look out for the gold-polished Jil Sander pumps for an effect that is nothing short of decadent.
Ferro Rocher-esque foil finishings are wrapping bags, too — cue the chic Tess bag from Chloe and ornate crystal-gilded cage clutches from Rosantica.
And while gold has been reigning supreme when it comes to jewellery, this season it’s bolder and braver than ever with fat hoops, the chunkiest of chains and gilded hair slides. (Jennifer Behr and Paco Rabanne are particularly worthy of attention to finish your look.)
As for styling? Embrace the extravagance of it all, and weigh yourself down with reckless abandon.
