Life in plastic, it’s fantastic!

Secret word? Transparency. The famous PVC returns to be the protagonist of the Spring/Summer 2018 collections. Clothes, coats, bags and plastic shoes parade on the catwalks of Chanel, Prada and Off-White.

One of the must-have most desired by fashion victims is the stiletto of Jimmy Choo for Off-White, a pair of leather sandals with heel coated with a kind of transparent plastic stocking.

Plastic started to be part of the fashion world since the ’60s. Especially when the French designer Paco Rabanne created several PVC dresses for innovative and futuristic collections.

Polyvinyl chloride, also called PVC, has fascinated many designers who have decided to use it in their collections for the hot season as a hallmark of style and modernity.

Transparent hoods and raincoats, boots, hats, gloves and bags. The Spring/Summer 2018 collection by Chanel is characterized by classic suits paired with tourist hats, capes to protect yourself from the rain and the wonderful cruissards that have already conquered the heart of all fashion victims.

Not just Chanel. Tibi signs the belts in maxi or mini version, Simone Rocha focuses on the special sandals embellished with pearls and rhinestones, while Off-White proposes the classic décolleté with a veil of transparent plastic to preserve it from rain, born from the collaboration with the famous brand of shoes Jimmy Choo. You can’t miss the sensual transparent longuette and the mini dress with Balmain ruffles.

The absolute protagonist of the collections that we have seen on the catwalks matches perfectly with all the colors of the summer palette, from pastel tones to the brightest ones.

Free rein to the imagination with bracelets, necklaces and earrings to add an alternative and never trivial accessory to the perfect look for spring.

Practical, glamorous and especially waterproof dresses!
