Love song in vel­vet

It’s luxe, it’s lovely. It’s of­fi­cially the ma­te­rial of the sea­son and we’re crush­ing on it hard

It hap­pens. From time to time a per­fectly lovely ma­te­rial will be thrown to the back of the fash­ion cup­board and for­got­ten, dis­carded like an un­wanted toy and forced to wait for the gods of style to awake from their stu­por and cham­pion its bril­liance once more. This au­tumn, it is well and truly vel­vet’s turn. Just as the ’70s ob­sessed over cor­duroy and the ’80s had a love-in with ly­cra and polka-dot silk, to­day we’re see­ing a ma­jor mo­ment for that fab­ric so beloved of the Tu­dors. The run­ways were awash—from the crushed vel­vet looks at 3.1 Phillip Lim and Etro to the sub­lime ac­ces­sories at Prada. And it’s no longer just stiff girly evening dresses and blaz­ers; the new vel­vet comes in pas­tels, em­broi­dered gowns and jump­suits. Feel­ing cau­tious? A vel­vet bootie or bag is the per­fect way to test the trend. My money says you’ll be rock­ing an emer­ald green Haider Ack­er­mann trouser suit be­fore you can say “Henry VIII’S breeches.” Chloé
