Dressing up dark Fall/Winter 2014-15 ensembles with a luxe shine, Colored Silver and Luminous Mauve emerge as two key metallic color trends this season, say the trend analysts at Infusing apparel and accessories alike with a rich, sophisticated shine, both shades are ideal for Junior and Contemporary market designs.

Silver Colored Metallics



New shaded filters bestow silver with a softer finish, sensitively reflecting the fabrics it is applied to for an almost oxidized effect. Aina Beck upgrades an Oriental-inspired tunic with a bold metallic block, while Alexander Wang’s cozy wool sweater incorporates iridescent geos. Helmut Lang goes for a futuristic outerwear look, mixing matte and shine panels on a longline coat.

Colored Silver hues add an instant elegance to Fall/Winter accessory styles.

Another play on futuristic themes, Milly by Michelle Smith opt for holographic textures on a zipped bag.

Luminous Mauve
