Metallics – Gold party dresses, gilded leather, Lurex woven into cashmere, shiny metallic fabrics in copper, bronze, silver and pewter. Even metallic makeup and nail polish is making a comeback.
Art Deco Prints – Bold geometric prints, but designed with symmetry, not the opt-art patterns of the Sixties. 1920s silver screen glamour.
Fur – Color-dyed fox coats, mink dresses, hats and collars trimmed in real or faux fur. Luxurious, soft and oh so warm. Think Coco Chanel in her Russian period.
