No one does luxe western wear like MUSE. It is as simple or complicated as that. It’s not to say that other designers aren’t as good but the difference clearly is between a brand that solely focuses on luxury Pret a Porter and brands that have their hands in all possible avenues including Bridals, Couture etc etc. I wish MUSE would at some point come into all these too but for now, the single mindedness gives them clarity and a global vision that I personally don’t see in any other local brand.
Is MUSE the one to beat every fashion week?? (for me yes) I know that a lot of people don’t believe that. BUT one thing is for sure… MUSE is perhaps one of the most fearless, fashion forward brands in Luxury Pret a Porter today. In my experience we all do what MUSE tells us to do a year later. Be it jumpsuits, or colour blocks, or pleats… Well this time I can confidently say, it will be metallics.
WHERE IS METALLIC TREND GLOBALLY?
If you’re a follower of great fashion, by now metallics should be in your cupboard. Going by the SS 2014 shows in London, NY, Paris and Milan, Metallics are one of the biggest trend this season. Brands like Lanvin, Saint Laurent, Versace and Givenchy presented head to toe Metallic looks.

WHERE IS METALLIC TREND LOCALLY?
To start with… On the MUSE ‘Foil Wrapped Candy’ Ramp. MUSE as you already know, procured it’s fabrics from the best of textile suppliers in Europe – the ones that supply to brands like Dior, Lanvin, Gucci etc.
If you’re on the fence, a little birdie tells me that the first orders for ‘Foil Wrapped Candy’ are going to be rolled out soon (ahan, ordered by local fashionistas who don’t want to wait for the styles to be in store). Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Here is the best of the metallic trend at MUSE PSFW 2014.
TREND ALERT – METALLIC LUXE

You’ve perhaps seen someone or the other wearing Comic Art. Markus Lupfer and Phillip Lim made it pretty big recently. In fact Style On Paper did an article on it as long as a year and a half ago. Anyway, Comic Art has been huge for sometime and it continues to be it seems… You must be wondering what’s suddenly inspired me to write about it… The answer would be some pieces from Elan’s recent Art Struck Elan collection AND a shoot shared with me by the ‘Splash’ team.
COMIC ART FASHION, RECENT HISTORY
While Comic Art has existed for eons, Phillip Lim popularized it recently in his Pre Fall 2012 collection.
The trend was taken well into 2013 by Markus Lupfer (and Phillip Lim) Comic Art sweatshirts which gained popularity with both local and global fashionistas:
COMIC ART FASHION COMES TO PAKISTAN FINALLY
Yes, so you see it makes sense now to do a post on Comic Art because whether your choice is Luxury Pret a Porter or High Street, it has finally come to you!
And on the flip side, Elan’s take on the same trend is as posh as they come.
