This year’s holiday collections revolve around statement dressing, as accessories sparkle and luminescent fabrics light the way forward. With the return of in-person celebrations, designers have fully leaned into high-octane glamour, making clothes that are destined to give off main-character energy at any party.
Unsurprisingly, disco-inspired looks are back in full force, thanks in no small part to Beyoncé’s “Renaissance” album. Capturing the desire to get together and dance, the aesthetic mirrors scenes from the iconic Studio 54 nightclub, promising a glitzy return to that time. From a languid Halston sequin dress in vibrant fuchsia to a mirror bag by Julien Dossena for Paco Rabanne, the ’70s-inspired pieces here convey the era’s hedonistic spirit flawlessly.
Designers have also incorporated a range of shiny fabrics into their collections. Case in point: Area’s crystal-embellished metallic jersey bustier top, which delivers maximum visual impact for the holiday season. The same goes for Brandon Blackwood’s hot-pink handbag or Simon Miller’s striking silver trench coat, both of which you can shop ahead. Elsewhere, Cult Gaia’s Katina knit dress breathes new life into the cutout trend, not unlike the way in which Hanifa’s feather-trimmed sandals provide extra frills during the festive months.
