Chromatic mini dresses bring the party to the streets.
While each designer at London Fashion Week has notable stylistic preferences, it appears that a certain metal has universal appeal. Say hello to the shiny silver mini, a one-piece that proves the merits of injecting a little disco.
At the Nensi Dojaka show, the designer experiments with signature codes like spaghetti straps and slinky proportions by engineering a mini dress with silver sequins and double-chain links. Over at Simone Rocha, the chrome mini gets a demure feminine spin, with puff sleeves and a bubble skirt. But the voluminous number remains sophisticated and streamlined, thanks to a subtly-cinched waist. Meanwhile, at JW Anderson, an ornamental dress is kitschy but wearable. Offsetting a structured spherical skirt is a relaxed drop-waist bodice and a textured metallic surface that playfully distorts reflections. Think tinsel, but make it fashion.
