AW10 trend report: Heavy metal
Now here’s one I didn’t see coming. Uber-embellished dresses and coats that require two people to lift them off the hanger. David Koma’s zip embellishment is certainly arresting but kind of excessive if you can’t life the dress in order to get into it. Ditto Roksanda Illincic’s heavily-beaded dress and Balmain’s (solid gold?) trench. Does this take over from six-inch heels in the fashion-as-hindrance stakes?

HAHAHA, fashion-as-hindrance! So true.

Curious…do we know how much these things weigh?

Stunning dresses, I think flats ar the way to go with them – the weight / height ratio of heels would result in certain A&E!

Oh my god that Balmain trench is so shiny. It must glow in the dark!
