Trend Spotting: Metallics Rule At Paris Fashion Week

The big takeaway from the French collections? Lots of shine. There was a stunning silver suit at Balenciaga, gold dresses and jackets at Dries Van Noten, a gorgeous shift woven with silver metallic threads by Martine Sitbon and Giles Deacon presented flashy pants and prom dresses.
