Ready to shine

Spring 12

Trend summary

From PVC fabrics through to metallic threads, they all added up to a heavy dose of high-shine for spring 12. Brocade, iridescent sequins and see-through plastics made a huge impact, most notably on dresses and jackets.

How to buy it

Subtle references can be made in knitwear by using metallic threads to add a hint of sparkle or as brocade on tailored jackets, both nodding to a more mature woman. PVC outerwear is at the most directional end of the look.
