The Foil Trend

It's all about shining bright in foil fabric for spring/summer, the coloured metallic trend noticed since last year on the catwalk for designers such as Burberry Prorsum, Dior and Jonathan Saunders has stuck around with all sorts of garments filtering into this year in a mixture of rainbow shades. Which was full of glamour and energy striking out with the use of rhinestones palette. Precious mineral tones like green beetle, sapphire,  emerald, bronze, quartz, and ruby shimmers like opening a box of Quality Street sweets.

Burberry Prorsum has succeeded in maintaining their signature British heritage of their iconic trench coat,  while bringing contemporary designs with high-tech materials expressed such versatility. I've been wanting to do a post on this collection for awhile now, though I'm glad I waited, as this fall 14 there were even foiling to embrace. The trend should not be mistaken though for just metallic or shimmery sequins. It shines a whole lot brighter, bolder, slicker, waxier with a foil like quality that rustles and crackles as it moves.
