Trend Alert: Feeling the Gilt

The Financial Times reports that over in London gold is suddenly the color and metal of the moment which means it will be the rage on our shores shortly.

The gals of west London are already swapping leather Frye boots and gypsy skirts for gold ballet flats

with faded jeans. Other options include Hermes’ pale gold espadrilles.

As for jewellery the focus is bold, chunky gold in all its tones, including yellow and rose.

Clothes have not escaped the gilded touch. Donatella Versace, of course, has always had a thing for gold. “Why don’t you. . .wear a gold python gold leather trench over your gym clothes,” she suggests in the March edition of Harper’s Bazaar. Bottega Veneta, a house known for quiet luxe, now boasts a gold leather trenchcoat in its current collection. And their signature Cabat and Venetia bags, more usually associated with natural-coloured leather, have also been given the gilded touch. We love this Matte Gold Sequined Silk/Cashmere Bolero over summer camis.

A metallic gold wallet decorated with grommets has already sold out on Net-a-Porter.com.

One of the easiest ways to buy into the golden trend is with a leather bag like this

Metallic Gold Pleat Clutch.

Gold is set to gain momentum in the autumn. Prada, for instance, has a selection of bags, and even luggage, in a colour halfway between copper and gold; while Burberry has gold Blackberry and iPod covers in the pipeline.
