Show Your Metal

BRIGHTS AREN’T THE only thing still front-and-center in fashion – so are metallic designs, especially silver. The latest collection from Paco Rabanne is awash in metallic silver, from mini-dresses to boyfriend pants, and Lanvin’s seasonal wardrobe features a silver jumpsuit as well as separates in a variety of metallic colors. You’ll also see silver shoes, such as low-heeled boots from Saint Laurent and sneaks in Nike’s stunning 2014 “Silver Speed” collection. Target your youth market for sure (kids and teens love the glitzy, upbeat allure of anything metallic), but think broadly– metallic can be used to catch any- one’s eye. Accessories in particular are superb because they introduce just a touch of sparkle.
