Vi­brant Vel­vet

Real Style - - Fashion News -

Since its hum­ble be­gin­nings in 2000 BC Egypt, vel­vet has be­come syn­ony­mous with lux­ury and glamour. The silken wo­ven tex­tile has been used in fash­ion for cen­turies, and doesn’t seem to be van­ish­ing any­time soon. Case in point: Vel­vet is the fab­ric du jour on the Fall 2016 run­ways, set­ting a soul­ful and sump­tu­ous mood for the sea­son.

Valentino’s take on the trend was a softly fall­ing mus­tard dress, with a high neck­line and dainty pleats. Mean­while, over at Givenchy, a lit­tle black vel­vet frock with plush fur three-quar­ter sleeves amped up the run­way. At Bot­tega Veneta, the ma­te­rial re­ceived an up­grade in the form of a deep blue dou­ble-breasted blazer and match­ing trousers. De­spite the vary­ing takes, one thing is cer­tain: What­ever your pre­ferred mood or style, there’s no quicker way into the spot­light this sea­son than as a vi­sion in vel­vet.
