HAVE YOU SEEN A DISCREET DAZZLE RUNNING THROUGH THE SHADOWS?
A furtive detail lights up a fabric or an accessory, like an unexpected spark emerging from dark foliage. Iversen (Designs, 5X17) proposes nocturnal flowers drawn in watercolour lines that sprout from grounds in warm earth tones. Lartigianabottoni (Accessories, 4C04) plays on contrast in sparkling bi-mirror accessories in misty tones between grey and navy blue. Swarovski (Accessories, 4F33-4G32) interprets this same idea of secret dazzle with Black Rainbow, a dark black stone with oily reflections, harbouring at its heart all the colours of the rainbow. In Fabrics, Olimpias (Fabrics, 6C5) is presenting a dark blue shirt-weight cotton jacquard, to which a coloured polyester yarn – white, green, red – lends a touch of light and a sensory feel. Low-key, luxurious, irresistibly chic.
