In the 40s it made its first appearances, but it was only later in the 70s and 80s, along with disco, that it really established itself in fashion. After some downtime, or with low notoriety, Sequins are getting ready for a full and complete return.
Glow as a fashion detail is recurring and gradually increasing every decade, but now sequins are taking over the catwalks, window displays, magazines and the streets, from festive looks to casual or classics to alternatives.
Brands like Burberry, House of Holland, Alexander McQueen, Erdem, Anish, Preen and Toyshop all heavily bet in sequins for their winter 2017 collection, each one according to the style and essence of the brand – and the outcome is beautiful.
• start with items that include sequins (such as t-shirts, trousers, jackets);
• assemble a casual or classic look and replace one of the pieces for one with sequins, such as a blazer, or a skirt, a t-shirt, and this will give you the glow;
• invest in sequin pieces or accessories that accentuate your look (a purse, belt, shoes, coat);
Tower Bridge in London was the location chosen for this photo shoot.
