One of the most luxurious materials available in the market, velvet, once again created quite an impact at the Milan and Paris runways, always adding a touch of fluidity to already feminine silhouettes. Velvet has once again made its presence felt everywhere on the catwalks and on the streets whilst celebrities like Cara Delevingne swear by it (her Emilio Pucci double-breasted blue velvet tuxedo jacket-dress on the red carpet earlier this year proves so).
Velvet has evolved and designers love to experiment with this royal fabric but be aware, sporting one item of velvet is enough. Please don’t pair your velvet wardrobe staples with velvet accessories ever. Black velvet blazer by Blazé Milano (available here), black leather and velvet thigh-length boots by Sergio Rossi (here).
