Zippers: Spring 2009

Zip into spring 2009 with an edgy closure. The rocker accents of motorcycle boots and hard edge jackets of Fall are now translating to more traditional pieces with a rocker twist. This closure is no longer for function. Zippers can take a once feminine ensemble to urban rocker.

3)  This futuristic Barbara Bui Top appears to have leaped off the pages of an Elle spread on the fashionistas of 2020. The flashy metallic hue and zippered detail may find the more conservative woman a bit nervous, but with the proper accessories you will dress to kill and maybe just perhaps all of the luck due to you in the future will surprisingly find you in the present.

The liquid gunmetal fabric with contrasting gold zippers on both cap sleeves and the exposed back zipper bring this trend to a new level. Paired with the right accessories you too will be ready to wow Nina Garcia from across the room at Pastis.
