The festive season just wouldn’t be complete without a sprinkle of sequins now, would it?
Last year saw stores decorated with an abundance of the metallic shine that we are so easily drawn to and this winter it seems that little has changed.
As long-time sequin lovers, we are certainly not complaining. See below for designers that embraced the sparkle, and our top 5 picks for festive sequin dressing:
3.1 Philip Lim
Some of the most memorable pieces from Phillip Lim’s collection were those showered with gold sequins, which makes his fall collection one of MFL’s favourites. Lim’s wearable look teamed sequins with short hemlines and tailored trousers. The perfect take on sexy androgyny.
Matthew Williamson went down an alternative route, discovering boho bling with his sequinned maxi dress. A surprising success, Williamson managed to apply his colour techniques to the material, creating a gorgeous mix of gold and blue. Whoever knew sequins could go sienna style?
Not for the faint-hearted, Balmain’s teeny tiny dresses have caused quite a stir , or rather, â€˜Balmania’ , among fashionistas. Loud and proud (although not to the extent of Ashish’s neon, sequinned, animal print trousers) was the name of the game for Christophe Decarnin this season, with a range of look-at-me body-con pieces ready for that 80s disco.
