Whether influenced by boudoir style or by classic party dresses, satin has gained a lot of space in urban fashion in recent times. And there are those who say that, decades ago, it was only reserved for off-street occasions. Today, you can see the synergy between fabric and other everyday items such as jeans and t-shirts. The trend also had that little streetstyle push, with fashionistas parading around in super desirable – and not obvious – looks. Here are examples of how Camila and I brought satin to our ensembles. While she invested in the monochromatic overlay consisting of slit spaghetti strap dress + turtle neck knit blouse, I opted for a satin Tufi Duek tailoring set. Notice how, regardless of the aesthetic proposal, it is possible to create outfits with the effect of the material – from cool slipdress to suit a with high dose of elegance.
Already on the runways, it is likely that you have seen, mainly, hybrid pieces as protagonists of the scene. For Deveaux, the black chemise proposes chic minimalism with an asymmetrical skirt, frill shoulders and a belt tied at the waist. In Marina Moscone’s collection, the jumpsuit plays with tailoring structure + deep neckline.
Among Jonathan Anderson’s ultra-modern creations for Loewe, an interesting encounter between turtle neck and skirt modeling that dares in the illusion of overlap – and this can be due thanks to the difference in fabrics or the fact of that it features localized prints. With Olivier Rousteing’s powerful view, Balmain presented a dress with not so obvious cutouts and with a certain depth.
Betting on the solar card, Jonathan Simkhai and Balenciaga chose orange and yellow as their protagonist colors, respectively. While the first invested in the version of the jumpsuit with the frill top and the bottom of the pants touching the floor, the other opted for the waist-tied chemise, which comes in the shape of the skirt. Two striking and sophisticated pieces in the same measure!
