One of the most distinct trends from the Fall/Winter 2016 collections of Milan Fashion Week was sequins. Sequins that knew nothing of subtlety, heavily adorned garments, and flashy silhouettes all demanded attention on the runways. Dolce & Gabbana's detailed feminine collection alluded to whimsical and fairytale inspiration roots, with fanciful shift dresses and flowy skirts. Gucci walked ornate floor-length dresses dripping in sequins down their runway, alongside a fashion-forward striped pantsuit entirely designed in sequins. Designers along the likes of Max Mara, Moschino, Brunello Cucinelli, and Jil Sander too affirmed the growing presence of shine.
