SHINE A LIGHT
Metallic goes modern for next spring. Mirror-finish silver is key, but lilac and soft greens expand the palette. A liquid mercury effect is achieved with glossy lamé at Yeohlee and Rodarte, both offering a cool, contemporary interpretation of the shimmery material. Alexandra O’Neill, who named her label Makarian after a particularly sparkling galaxy, used shimmery beads, while Badgley Mischka’s sensuous pant set glimmers with pavé sequins. Brandon Maxwell, influenced by pandemic-era ease, loosened up his eveningwear approach for a laidback satin shirt over a sweeping pleated maxi skirt, for a look that is both relaxed and spectacular.
