Well well, who would’ve seen this day coming? Plastic is all over the runways. Blame it on the ’60s futuristic fashion dominated by PVC or the Kardashian love for clear plastic heels, there ain’t no denying this trend.
While a transparent accent on your footwear remains the safest way to add some plastic to your ensemble, designers have wowed us with their inspiring use of the material. Raf Simons went vintage and placed a plastic overlay on wrap dresses and trench coats, Chanel went sci-fi chic with embroidered plastic cloaks, Miu Miu turned up the glam with clever fur detailing and Versace spun an edgy take on their popular studded footwear by throwing in PVC. And who can forget Topshop’s internet-breaking clear-knee and clear plastic jeans?
Is plastic fashion a bit bizarre? Maybe. Is it going to be functional? Probably not. But boy, does it make a statement!
