trend watch: iridescent bags

Clockwise L to R: Hologram Envelope Clutch - Somewhere Nowhere at Bengt £81, Clutch - H&M £14.99, Mirror Hologram Boxy Bag - Pixie Market $78, Square Pouch - & Other Stories £12.

The whole space-age, metallic trend was all over S/S 2013 collections. Burberry Prorsum offered head-to-toe reflective outfits in numerous block colours, while Louise Grey boldly implemented outlandish mirrored earrings into her collection. More on this in this post.

Proenza Schouler and Stella McCartney have fashioned a more wearable take on the iridescent trend. The much coveted PS11 satchel has been upgraded this season with a beautiful metallic finish as pictured above on Krystal of What Is Reality Anyway. Metallic sliver iridescent things can easily scream TACKY but worn as a bag gives the right amount of sartorial edge to a simple, paired back outfit. It's a bit of fun and I love the fact that iridescent bags look different in every light. Head to H&M and & Other Stories for on point purse-friendly iridescent offerings. Helen Glory picked up an amazing clutch from & Other Stories which is no longer available online (sob sob).
