This silver lamé dress held no associations I usually identify with the fabric: horrifying disco numbers. It was the most elegant treatment of the material I’ve ever seen, made even more regal with the juxtaposing soft snow white coat.
Another shiny suit that caught my eye was this swirly, shiny silver number by Gabriele Colangelo. I’ve always been an avid lover of jackets featuring rounded shoulders, reminiscent of Christian Dior’s New Look. I have to admit that I haven’t paid much attention to Colangelo, but this collection is pretty outstanding.
And lastly, here is a little ’60s (not disco!) mini dress by Gianfranco Ferré, with its own slightly futuristic spin. This upholstery-like metallic fabric compliments the structure of the dress, with the stiff sleeves just sort of heavily floating in the air. Kind of reminds me of Edie Sedgwick, which is a good thing.
