Metallic Colour Inspiration from Good Clothing & Plascon

Earlier today I featured the Good Clothing stand at KAMERS vol geskenke, which is currently being held at Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West. I also promised you a look at some of the mood-board imagery that inspired the stall itself… Below are some of the images that Louise Park-Ross found when brain-storming the concept:

Right now, metallics really couldn’t be more on trend, as metallic sheens are being referenced everywhere – from catwalks to beauty to décor. What I love about this current reinvention of the metallics trend is that it is less specific than the last time we saw it surface at the beginning of the century. In the early naughties its incarnation was in the form of shimmery silvers; then it turned to soft champagne gold tones before moving to burnished bronzes and pewters.

During the recession, designers and creatives seemed to shy away from ostentatious and luxe metallics; but with the upswing in the global economy, once more we are seeing these colours creeping back into everything! And anything goes: champagne gold, sunny gold, rose gold, platinum, pewter, silver, bronze, chocolate bronze, copper, anthracite… There seems to be less a “metal of the moment” as there is a “metal moment”. Below is just a smattering of the inspiring imagery and design that can be found on metallics – enjoy the eye candy! 😉
