Paris Collections Trend: Rose Gold

Designers are viewing spring through rose-colored glasses, and their collections show it. Metallic rose-gold leather appeared throughout the Paris collections, surpassing other metallics as the new neutral for spring. Perhaps it was Victoria Beckham’s now well-known request to have designer Brian Atwood create shoes to match her rose-gold Rolex that sparked the trend, but he’s not the only one that is riding this wave. Alexandre Birman and Raoul went for the all-over blush look with mid-wedge sandals, while Raphael Young and Burak Uyan paired rose-gold leather with contrasting hues for a tougher look. Chrissie Morris turned to rose-gold python to add a glamorous accent to neutral-colored stingray platform sandals.
