On & Around the Street

TREND ALERT: STAR POWER

Emilia Wickstead, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Gucci (pre-fall 2017), Christian Dior

Designers embraced the last frontier for autumn/winter 2017, going intergalactic in their interpretations of all things astronomical. And, as the historic black moon is set to dawn on August 21, the trend couldn’t be more timely.

The stars aligned on the runways with astronauts at Dolce & Gabbana and Chanel, sequined planets in Gucci’s pre-fall collection, and moon phases at Dior, plus quicksilver sequins at Emilia Wickstead and enough planetary-inspired jewellery to create your own constellation.

So whether it’s an embellished T-shirt or a statement necklace, grab your handful of stars now. Here is our pick of the best stellar buys on Sloane Street…
