Trendwatch- Metallics

SO we all know about the rain and all that jazz, a months fall in two days, hailstones of an apocalyptic nature, and tornados in the east midlands non-place that is Hinkley, but at least- even if the sun isn't shining- metallics have been shimmering down the catwalks in Fall '12 coture collections in Paris.

"As if lifted from a palace along the banks of the Bosporus, Ottoman motifs subtly infuse the collection with imperial splendour,"
All that glitters...Elie Saab Fall 2012 in Paris Wed 4th July
Elie Saab paraded a bevvy of Byzantine beauties adorned in shimmering gold in Paris this Wednesday (4th July 2012). Perhaps its the recession and constant tightening of our belts that's meant the forthcoming season is leaning to more opulent fabrics and finishes, but you'll be glad to know that the incoming styles from some of our favourite brands here at Tinfish haven't neglected the metallic trend either.

When buying from Fly London for Autumn 2012 we absolutely fell in love with this suede ankle boot, on a practical wedge heel with contrasting suede and burnished metallic leather panels. 
With a strong colour palette of teal, burnished gold and inky black these wedge heeled boots are bound to be a real show-stopping addition- with an easy to wear wedge heel, we're tipping these gorgeous slip-on ankle boots for the top next season. 

More to look out for: 
We've also got some fabulous vintage-inspired metallic heels from Miss L Fire, killer shimmering heels from new brand Ruby Rocks as well as some outrageous shiny numbers from Irregular Choice heading our way- in terms of trending looks like all that glitters really will be wardrobe gold next season.

We're excited to announce that the first of our Camper collection for Autumn Winter 2012 has arrived in store! Following their first leg victory in the Volvo Ocean race alt week (the Camper team pipped team PUMA into port at Galway on all about it here) Camper look set for a triumphant season in store- with the welcome return of their Wabi slipper in a range of colours for this season....we can't help but wonder if Chris Nicholson and the rest of his team donned pairs after arriving into port?
