If you think about it, hologram is the ultimate color and anti-color at once. It’s whatever color you want it to be! It’s suddenly emerging everywhere – much like girl-of-the-moment Rita Ora, who showed she has a deftly modern sensibility at the British Fashion Awards last month. Wearing a head-to-toe look out of Stella McCartney’s Resort ’13 collection, Rita gave her relaxed trouser-and-sweater combo a real sense of purpose with – what else? – her accessories.
If you ask me, matching your shoes to your bag has been feeling fresh and new all over again (and not in a fifties housewife way), but when your clutch and pumps are iridescent? The effect is downright futuristic! Winter white has a new meaning: it’s boyish meets Barbarella. Rihanna, watch your back. There’s a new McCartney-wearing rebel in town!
Steal the Look: It’s no surprise Stella’s foldover clutch is sold out everywhere, but why not upgrade your iPad with her crinkly case (on Net-a-Porter for $260). Or take a bright approach with Kzeniya’s Sharp Hologram leather clutch (available for pre-order on Luisa via Roma for $336, with delivery by January 31st), which has more saturation.
