Gold – from gold jewelry to golden fabrics – graces the catwalks for summer 09. It’s going to be a chunky, bold and gorgeously golden summer.
Gold diggers take note! Your favorite metal is making a big splash in the fashion world, and the trend is one we can expect to see well into next year. Runways from New York to Paris, London to Milan all glittered with gold metallics this fall, and gold jewelry accessories are holding their ground from a summer must-have to a spring ’09 necessity.
Designers like Versace, Donna Karan, Dior, and Monique Luillier all featured chunky gold jewelry on the catwalk, and iconic designers Reem Acra, Diane von Furstenerg and Vera Wang used gold fabrics to add glitter to their lines.
Laminated linen, gold plated leather and gold applications on silks and chiffons were just some of the shimmering interpretations the designers came up with. And we’ve reported again and again that large gold jewelry looks will be making a statement well into spring.
“The Renaissance of gold in the fashion world shows no signs of slowing down,” says Duvall O’Steen of World Gold Council. “With the increasing value of gold, coupled with the economic concerns, gold has become a meaningful and safe investment for any jewelry wardrobe.”
