In stark contrast to the quiet minimalist look that was trending a while back, every about the holographic trend shouts out for a celebration. With a futuristic, space-age vibe Catwalk uses holographic patent and PVC to make wardrobes brighter and shinier. The trend has brought iridescent colours to the forefront and given bling a unique spin.
The holographic trend started as far back as 2013. It was fashion designers like Burberry, Stella McCartne and Janathan Saunders who were probably the first to use it in their 2013 Spring Summer collections. Since then it’s been featured on clothes, accessories, boots and shoes of all kinds.
The Stella McCartney Mirror Prism Pumps brought shimmer of the runway in 2012.
In 2013, singer, Katy Perry flaunted ahead to toe holographic look with Gammaray holographic platform boots by UNIF. This was also the year Lanvin models strode down the runway in holographic python pumps.
A few years later in 2018, Beyonce too highlighted the holographic look with custom Christian Louboutin fringe boots.
She wasn’t the only one to flaunt the look. Holographic shoes also made an appearance in Maison Margiela, Sies Marjan and Jeremy Scott’s fall-winter 2018 show. This look isn’t reserved for high-fashion heels, it’s even found its way to sneaker city. Nike, Vans, Converse and Y.R.U. are some of the labels that have featured the holographic look.
The Holographic Trend is here to stay.
At the 2019 Meta Gala, holographic heels captured the spotlight when Jennifer Lopez wore a strappy pair on the red carpet. Christian Louboutin’s Summer/Spring 2019 collection showcased seductive stilettoes in green iridescent leather.
Catwalk’s High Shine collection is all about shine and sparkle. Holographic Patent and PVC has been used to give sneakers and everyday wedges a fun, vibrant and energized look. Its casual, comfortable and just what you need to amp up your look. While we may not recommend going the Katy Perry route, these shoes can be paired with just about any outfit in your wardrobe. They complement denims and trousers just as well as they complement dresses and skirts.
The trend has a modern chic look that brings out your inner style diva and adds a pop of colour to any outfit. Its experimental but well suited to formal cocktails. Depending on how your pair it, it’s a look that can be flaunted in daylight as well as under the night sky. If we’re to go by celeb wardrobes, this technicolour trend just became the new black. The trend is here to stay so how about trying it on for size?
