L’Wren Scott; Emanuel Ungaro; Dolce & Gabbana
Renowned for its mouthwatering lustre, gold was AW2013’s most popular metal, its versatility coming through in the myriad silhouettes and finishes that oozed sophistication and luxury.
L’Wren Scott’s decadent celebration of gold was inspired by Gustav Klimt whose iconic coils and spirals took the form of glistening precious metal tattoos, golden hoops and cascading bib chokers.
Emanuel Ungaro sent out flamboyant golden pins in the form of hothouse flowers and butterflies whilst Dolce & Gabanna’s micro mosaic-set, gold filigree jewels included OTT crucifix earrings, rosary-style pendants and fairtytale princess crowns.
Interpret The Look: Use clever cut out techniques and explore ancient wire crafts like filigree and fretwork to drive maximum surface area and create visual appeal.
Flower clusters, crosses and round medallion shapes are key motifs.
Chandelier earrings, bibbed high neck chokers, feminine tattoo-inspired bracelets, rings and cuffs should inspire new directions.
