Putting on the glitz for a glam night out
Juan Carlos Obando, Prada
From Diane von Furstenberg's "American Hustle"-worthy metallic-print wrap dresses to glittery coats with shaggy collars by Rodarte and Prada, the season's most decadent offerings, dressed up in geometric motifs and gilt, are made for glam nights.
At Saint Laurent, Hedi Slimane has channeled "The Mod Squad" with fierce metallic leather mini-dresses and go-go boots. Fausto Puglisi, one of Milan's hot new designers, plays with colorful harlequin checks on graphic, jewel-encrusted tops that are paired with flippy skirts. (The look has already found favor with Jennifer Lopez.)
When it comes to sexy accessories, Brian Atwood's rainbow fringe-suede boots are a disco party for the feet, and Bulgari's Serpenti chevron-embroidered handbag with snake-head closure and malachite eyes is a tempting catch for the wrist.
But Buccellati's $175,000 diamond-encrusted iPhone case takes the prize for off-the-chart over-the-top. No way you're leaving that on the dance floor.
