One of the trends for Spring 2010: lucid wear. Designers are feeling transparent for Spring 2010; from head to toe literally. Accessories from Patricia Von Musulin, Zac Posen and Sonia Rykiel trench coats, Fendi clutches, and Michael Kors pretty much dedicated his collection to the trend. Kors has a pair of brogues I would kill for.
Does anyone else remember when this, then considered a “fad”, was in a few years ago? Plastic-like shoes were everywhere; when one would sweat they would stick to your feet and they often would turn yellow. Louis Vuitton even had those transparent hologram bags. This time around, it seems designers have invested more time; we’ve come to the point where the contemporary and bridge lines are adapting ideas from better brands and making them… well, better. (no pun intended) Lucid-wear can be tricky and sometimes tacky, but these garments are far from a disaster. We all know designers grab inspiration from what’s going on the world- could this “plastic” surge come from everyone clamoring to “Go Green”? Who knows. But I do know I’m not the only one asking how long this trend will last.
