It’s certainly dramatic to bedeck models with crystal caged headpieces, but look past the runway theatrics and see that clear crystal and Lucite is a wearable and notable trend on the Paris Fashion Week Spring 2019 runways. The Paris shows might not be over, and Chanel kicked off the clear trend at its SS18 show, so there’s a possibility of a revival. Still, we couldn’t resist gathering some of the clear highlights:
Clear faceted beads “chandelier drop” twist and a vintage feel. Anrealage also showed clear buttons, clear pyramid studs and other clear items sewn into clear/white fabric. Stacks of clear bangle bracelets added to the drama, sometimes all in Lucite, other times topped in silver metal as they were at Balmain.
Balmain showed clear in a variety of ways, from clear shoes to Lucite “carrying cases” for handbags.
Not all was crystal and Lucite. Maison Margiela showed transparent headwear that was like a cool helmet. Bring on the rain!
