With all my fangirling over the Burberry Prorsum and Mulberry runway shows I very nearly missed the Giles S/S12 collection. As always it was wonderfully eccentric and full of beautiful Gaga-worthy gowns and tailored pieces with a simple colour palette of primary reds, white, nudes, black and the main trend I want to showcase…metallic silver.
This particular trend is very hard to pull off, but I’ve picked out some items you can buy now to incorporate into your Autumn/Winter wardrobe without looks like a Christmas ornament
The trick to making them look more “Giles” is to go for simple designs and classic shapes. And as great as the full-on silver suit above looks on the runway, translating it into real life may be pretty hard to pull off. So go for one statement silver item at a time or accessories using shoes or jewellery.
