DID IT ALL START WITH COMME DE GARCON FALL 2011? According to Tim Blanks in his style.com review, Rei Kawakubu stated that "gold is the new colour".
However it started, gold leaf has been prevalent at the Spring/Summer 2012 shows. Seen at Fendi on the eyelids and eyebrows, it just looks SO FUN.
Perhaps more wearable, if gold leaf can be at all wearable, is the Topshop Unique gold leaf hair. I definitely want to try this, I think I will have to pop into Eckersley's in the near future.
On another note, I am so in love with Charlotte Free's pink hair.
