Velvet trend? Yes, please!
I still remember a time when I just did not like it. It was in my father’s wardrobe. The one when he was very young. Not only. It has been the prince symbol of the Seventies’. From sofas to jackets. From flared trousers to chairs and armchairs.
Then, comes Prada who, in the fall / winter 2017-2018, decides to open those wardrobes and re-propose an era. Not without the political spirit that distinguishes her.
But it’s not just Miuccia. Many designers has presented this fabric on the catwalk. From Milan to New York, passing through London and Paris, everyone sees it in their own way.
Velvet trend: aristocratic or radical chic? It depends on how we match it
All that is old is new
Just a look at the velvet trend with new eyes to rekindle the passion for this fabric. Aristocratic and elegant, on one hand. Casual and radical chic on the other. It all depends on how we team it.
Brown or cognac velvet. The classic of all the classics. To combine with a cardigan worn like a jacket on the t-shirt. With a shirt with a maxi collar and a gilet. Paired with a simple cachimire sweater. Or, if we feel self confident enough like Miuccia, on a woolen mini crochet tos.
Red velvet. The inspiration is MaxMara’s and the total look. The idea is to combine textures and heaviness. Wool sweaters, teddy bear coats, light silks. The important thing is that it shouled be ton sur tone. You can break it with a belt or even a baby carrier.
Emerald Green velvet. Sophisticated and chic version. Certainly not for everyone. To be preferred in the tailleur combination. Wear it with ease.
Soft blue sky. Perhaps the tone less obvious tone. It can be discreet and at the same time original.
Even in the evening we can we can wear the velvet trend
The velvet suitable for the evening becomes smooth and soft. Like that of Dior’s clothes. Strictly in blue naivy.
Or the Temperley London pink jumpsuit. Finally, it is impossible to forget the super sexy and feminine versions proposed by Saint Laurent on his short and one-shoulder dresses.
