Oyster #98 Trend Report: Shiny Happy People

Inescapable embellishment, lurex and shimmering textures.

Fashion’s enduring love for minimalism went on hiatus this season (with the exception of its most devoted supporters, Phoebe Philo and Raf Simons). Embellishment, lurex and shimmering textures were inescapable, whether it was Karlie Kloss’ flashy flamenco dress at Viktor & Rolf or the elaborate adornments at Louis Vuitton. Rejoice — this is not the season for subtlety.
