Matthew Williamson served up a series of glittering shifts in vibrant holographic hues.
The OTT extravagance at Marc Jacobs was all the more heightened by a brooch style embellishments making mirrored patterns across skirts and dresses.

Christian Dior worked the trend in a more subtle, restrained fashion, encrusting elegantly tailored tops with dainty jewelled flowers.
