All That Glitters
Are you a Glitter Bug? Bring some glistening light into your wardrobe with sparkling sequins.
Like shimmering iridescent mermaids or twinkling disco dancers, sequins add an unmistakable sparkle to your style.
Seen on the Spring / Summer runways of Elie Saab, Christopher Kane, Givenchy, and more; this is a classic embellishment too pretty to sprinkle. Embrace these delicate metallic plates from head-to-toe. From this season’s must-have accessory – Miu Miu’s glittery heels (pictured top) to Elie Saab’s glamorously chic bejewelled evening gowns (pictured above); sequins are a timeless feel-go fashion favourite.
And sequins needn’t only come out at night. Case in point: Anna Dello Russo’s extraordinary emerald green Dolce and Gabbana Dress (pictured top).
