On the radar: a natural extension of the textured embellishment trend I discussed last week. Hardware trims such as zippers and metal snaps are turning up as utilitarian embellishments on clothes for both men and women. I love the contrast of the hard details on a soft piece of clothing, especially when done with a subtle hand.
I saw a couple of nice examples while trendscouting at Armani Exchange:
For Men: Zipper Placket on a Raglan Sleeve Knit Shirt.
$49.99 at A|X.
For Women: Snap detailing on a scoopneck tee.
$38.00 at A|X.
