Gold rush

Etro, Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier

You've probably already heard tons of information about gold. Gold buttons, gold dresses, gold bags, gold shoes - it's Midas all over the place. Many gold pieces on clothes and accessories from Fall remind me of armours, just like it was at the haute couture runway recently. Like an armour, the gold sections look like they were designed after protective medieval shields, covering the arms, the shoulders and the neck. One could say that this details reflect on the need to protect ourselves from the dangers of today or maybe more designers are looking to medieval influences for inspiration.
