Shiny and New!

Every few years the trend for bright, shiny, sparkly metallic looks rolls around again adding a shock of glitz and glamour to the runways. This summer is no exception, the metallic trend is back but in an understated and less trashy fashion! There really is nothing better to lift a simple, casual outfit from safe and staid to stunning and stylish than a metallic bag or shiny shoes!

Modern Sophistication

The wonderful thing about this season's take on metallics is that they are less sparkly and less hi-sheen. It is as if the shiny, lurex-look has been buffed off leaving us with a soft and subtle leather that is seriously sophisticated and stylish, yet casually cool. The subdued, burnished colours have an almost vintage finish that is infinitely more appealing to us mere mortals.

The top-to-toe metallic look is best left to the models strutting the catwalk, or perhaps the odd 80's-themed or Space Age party!

Summer statement

We have always advocated the 'less is more' philosophy when it comes to dressing, All you need is a gorgeous handbag or pair of shoes to make a statement about you and your style.

Part of the allure of metallics, particularly gold and silver, is that they are universally flattering and attractive.  Whether you are fair or dark skinned you will be able to find a metallic colour that suits your skintone.

With holidays fast approaching, nothing will get you in that summer mood more than a new shimmery, pearlised handbag or pair of sandals gleaming against sun-kissed skin.
