Weve looked into our crystal balls and the fashion forecast is clearer than ever: its got to be plastic, fantastic and totally transparent to be hot for summer 2012.
And the timing couldnt be better. In a season where sunshine has been all but obscured by unseasonal rains, this weather-resistant fabric will fight off the elements while keeping you looking crystalline cool.
Take inspiration from the London catwalks, where designers such as Richard Nicoll and Simone Rocha led the plastic revolution, with cellophane tops layered over silken slips and delicate lace entrapped within see-through synthetics.
The easiest way to wear the trend is on your accessories: a Perspex heel here, a plastic belt there will be just enough to show your clear credentials. Layer over denim or tantalise by wearing directly on your skin. Why? Because plastic is all the better to see you with, my dear.More
