The shimmery and glamorous gold is back in vogue. Not just in clothes, but accessories like goldstreaked watches, bags and footwear are the ‘in’ thing now. When actor Freida Pinto walked the red carpet at a recent fashion event in Paris donning a golden gown, she made headlines across the globe.
Along with the Indian beauty, French model Inès de la Fressange was seen sporting a golden cowl neck halter, while actor Jane Fonda wore a gold jacket to the same event. Back home, actor Genelia D’Souza’s sparkling gold sandals at a party was the talk of town and Kangna Ranaut made a pretty picture in gold too. So this season, fashionistas are digging out their golden garments and accessories. “It just adds to the festive spirit. Gold is a rich and royal colour. Either a gold dress or any accessory, if combined well, looks amazing,” says designer Gaurav Jai Gupta. The shimmer is not only dominating wardrobes, but watches and bags have also been exclusively designed for the ‘gold’ season.
Versace, Michael Kors, home-bred Tarun Tahiliani and other big names have unveiled their exclusive gold designs. “It is an eternal colour and is definitely dominating this season. The metallic, shiny and classy look is evergreen,” says designer Sanchita Ajjampur, who was recently spotted at an event flaunting a nude-gold colour dress with a gold vintage bag and sandals. Even men are willing to try this style mantra. “A gold Rolex with a white shirt and formal trousers looks very classy,” says swimmer Rehan Poncha.
