Runway Trend Alert – Velvet Fog

Lush velvet, which emerged for Pre-Fall, is making an impact on London F/W 13 runways. All types — slithery panne, intricate burnout, antique-y crushed, fluid silk, printed, sculpted — look right for the upcoming season, fashioned into everything from demure daydresses to show-stopping evening looks. Deconstructed details and modernist shapes contrast nicely with this fabric’s historic connotations. – Sharon Graubard
