Whenever the condition of this world we’re living in becomes dispiriting, designers often look to outer space to inspiration and who could blame them?
Space-inspired references have been scattered throughout the runways for many seasons now, yet this time around flashes of metallic made it even more tangible than previously.
Cue a high-shine palette of iridescent space greys, silver and moon rock-inspired sparkling embellishment.
There is no more exciting frontier than that of their future and if Karl Lagerfeld assembled a giant Chanel rocket at the middle of the Grand Palais in Paris, it became clear that the trend for all things intergalactic was unavoidable.
Aside from the rocket, which actually shattered off after a dramatic 10-second countdown, it had been the versions which grabbed our attention.
There was an actual “Starman” vibe since Lagerfeld kitted his women at all from astronaut printing dresses into Mylar-style quilted space blankets and glitter glasses which were made for walking on the moon.

Anyhow, Balenciaga showcased a silver version of its embossed leather blouse — that has been known for appearing remarkably like a rubber car carpet protector — while Paco Rabanne’s sci-fi looks intertwined with sports affects.
Transforming the house’s signature vinyl chainmail “Disc-o-Rama” dress, there were slinky silver numbers, asymmetric skirts along with thick-soled masculine flats.
The trendy garments are diverse and different like the Satin Tuck Blouse from Boutique, #69,
Wish to create like the celebrities? Then it is time to inject your wardrobe with some high-shine metallics.
Without doubt the easiest way to embrace this tendency is using a new purse, therefore ditch your trusty black carryall in favour of something silver, however, don’t go overboard on shine as it has the capacity to appear cheap.
If you balance the glitz you can correct your look using items like the Mini Cross-Body Bag, #15.99, Mango
Alternatively, sneakers are just another excellent entry stage with everything from trainers and disco-ready flatforms into skyscraper stilettos out there in space-inspired hues.
If you would like to wear this tendency by day, we suggest picking up a metallic blouse or opting for geometric stones in out-of-this-world contours.
