Velvet clothing – a sign of the high cost and bourgeois taste. At least, as previously thought, before the world, the designers decided to integrate it into your everyday wardrobe. What came of it is told in the review of the latest fashion collections. Phillip Lim. Phillip Lim
On the catwalks of the capital’s fashion Weeks velvet appeared for a long time. However, initially, due to the stereotypes worked with him very superficially and carefully, adding only an element of decor to dresses and skirts. The whole of this noble fabric was making is that the accessories – gloves, hats and pouches, handbags originally all of the same distant decades. Today, during the fashion revolution of the most extraordinary decisions the designers with velvet play high stakes, wrapping it girls literally from head to toe.
Phillip lim, for example, in his new autumn-winter collection, introduced the velvet in several «forms» of stitched quite a casual pleated dresses, tops, jackets, and even suits, which, despite all the fears, look very stylish and «mundane». The designer also continued the tradition of making velvet accessories, making tissue mustard booties in addition to the Park and this season’s dress-the apron.
The idea of shoes of velvet so liking the capital’s it-girls, that they already flaunt it around the cobbled streets of Rue Cambon and Fifth Avenue. Velvet boots was spotted stars street-style Kristina Bazan and Gilda Ambrosio, and sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian. Each of the girls wearing beautiful boots on their own, combining them with leather coats, voluminous fur coat, or thing of the same texture.

To velvet suits, in addition to Lima, the appeal of the Costume National brand, Lacoste, Opening Ceremony and Alberta Ferretti, who bravely put them in the context of business, sports and even pajama styles. This trend was proposed in the fall, but came into use only now, when it was supported by many of the leading designers and, importantly, European and American celebrities. Among them the model Bianca Brandolini and singer Zendaya, who appeared in costumes of velvet on recent receptions.
Their colleagues, by the way, chose to wear a separate costume elements — velvet high-waisted pants and sleek blazers. I wonder what things are composed of such «aristocratic» of the material with the sneakers, jeans and tank tops bustier. After all, the velvet itself adds a needed femininity and elegance, pulling attention from other, more simple elements.

Despite the fact that today from this fabric made in almost all garments, including blown bulky jackets, blouses, suits and richly embroidered bombers, the most popular «velvet version of» are dresses of different colors and lengths. They have already moved beyond the catwalk and a train pulled on the Red carpet of the awards, as was the case with Lady Gaga who puts on a ceremony «Golden globe» black dress Atelier Versace, or brie Larson, appeared at the party in honor of winners of «Oscar» in the dress of the brand Monse.
Festive dresses can be found in the extreme collections of Derek Lam, Edun, Fendi, Ralph Lauren, Preen By Thornton Bregazzi and Valentino — they are in perfect harmony not only with sandals and classic pumps, but with today’s popular loafers, oxfords and Derby. Unlike other brands, Dolce & Gabbana insist that the velvet outfits can only be worn Princess: Domenico and Stefano decorate these dresses large badges and brooches and combine them with fabulous shoes and handbags-the caskets.
Anyway, given the trend for velvet to ignore fail — too much of it in shops and on the streets of fashion capitals. It remains only to choose how to wear this kind of luxury matter, and for someone to be like: the Russian Empress, the heroine of the disney cartoon or the girl from «next door», skillfully connecting textures and shapes from seemingly completely different eras.
