There are a few select staples that are best reserved for the after-dark wardrobe (*cough* bralet); sequin is not one of them. New York Fashion Week designers have given us permission to wear sparkles during the day. Fashion magpies unite! If there is one overarching trend of Spring/Summer ’17, it is the season neutralisation of fall fabrics. Velvet, satin and (our favourite) sequin are no longer an Autumn/Winter mainstay, but a season-proof statement that will keep your customer polished season upon season, come rain or shine.
Christmas is fast approaching, and your customer will question if that NYE sequin dress is really worth the cost-per-wear. The answer is a dazzling yes. NYFW is breaking the seasonal cycle by proving that the sequin dress is not a one-night stand, but a fully committed style companion.
More Venice Film Festival, than Vegas showgirl, Parisian Wholesale’s SS17 sequin review will guarantee your sparkle season range will truly shine bright. Enjoy!
Rebecca Minkoff Spring/Summer ‘17
Rebecca Minkoff, heralded for her wearable separates, took the streets of Manhattan by storm. Minkoff’s blogospheric street style-inspired runway replaced Insta models with influencers, showcasing the trends that real girls want to millions of social followers. One trend that shone brighter than the rest was the blue sequin v-plunge dress. Layered over a bohemian peasant blouse, this is definitely the next blogger style power combo worthy of a double-tap.
Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer ‘17
Jeremy Scott’s tongue-in-chic SS17 took inspiration from 1980’s New York club scene. The loud graphics, ironic prints and bold colours were signature Scott’s cartoon-couture aesthetic, but what really stood out amongst the noise was the unexpected chicness of sequin on sequin. We predict this daring matchy-matchy style trick will decorate the covers and editorials of Vogue, ELLE and Glamour.
Altuzarra Spring/Summer ‘17
“It’s a bit of a fruit salad this season!” Altuzarra’s romantically kitsch Spring/Summer ’17 was a pick ‘n’ mix of fruitful delight. Decorated with sequin lemons and cherries, Joseph Altuzarra summer dresses zestfully proved the sequin trend is a versatile one. We predict the scattered sequin approach will be cherry-picked by retail juggernauts Topshop, & Other Stories and Zara. We can just see the scattered sequin patchwork denim cut off shorts now.
