It’s also important to note the accessories. The popular Swipe bag received a golden makeover, quite literally: Gabriele Veneri, an Italian craftsman from the Semar SRL factory, crafted a version out of 18-carat gold (it’s estimated to cost up to $100,000, FYI). Among the new bags are the Vanit-E, a cube-shaped top-handle bag; the Lady bag, a wider, more demure piece; and a new glass bag, similar to the viral one from last season, which was decorated in flowers and had the glass treated to create an iridescent effect. There were also clip-on sunglasses, inspired by The Matrix, adding to the brand’s distinctive futuristic-chic aesthetic.
When it comes to technical fabrications on the clothes, Meyer and Vaillant continued to trailblaze, whether it’s with the holographic floral prints bonded onto neoprene dresses and jackets, or slinky slip dresses where vertical panels of fabric are held together with metallic ringlets not dissimilar to a traditional phone cord. But the ultimate futuristic flex for this season was the final look, which was made using Fabrican, a patented spray-on material from a can that hardens into wearable textile.
