The modern way to shine alu­minum foil

Female (Singapore) - - F-EDIT -

At Chanel, the crin­kled, me­tal­lic sil­ver fin­ish rem­i­nis­cent of the ubiq­ui­tous, high-shine kitchen wrap ap­peared on padded coats, quilted stoles and bags. Rei Kawakubo used a sim­i­lar tex­ture on ex­ag­ger­ated bul­bous dresses at Comme des Gar­cons. And to achieve what it calls a “lu­nar ef­fect” on a line of over­sized, wa­ter-proof du­vet-parkas (above), Mon­cler treated the sur­face of wax cot­ton with sil­i­con. The next time any­one asks why you’re wear­ing what looks to be tin foil, tell them: “It’s hot.”
