lots of brands, like Dior and YSL, have created holiday collections centered around gold, a festive shade always popular at this time of the year. Marc Jacobs, instead, is spicing things up a bit with mysterious dark shades paired with nude hues. Here are more details:
Dior Golden Shock
From the inception of the House of Dior, gold has been a signature color of the brand. From Mr. Dior’s first creations, which incorporated highlights of rich gold as luxurious accents, to the modern-yet-timeless looks of Raf Simons, which feature metallic gold elements to balance audacious shades of red, pink, blue and yellow, gold remains a constant theme. Now, the Dior Golden Shock Holiday Color Collection draws inspiration from Dior’s past and present by incorporating pops of color with dazzling gold accents.
