Shine On in Our Exclusive Label This Season

When it comes to the holiday season, a certain degree of sparkle and shine is to be expected. However, in the spirit of our Holiday 2017 Look Book, we’re taking things a step further and keeping metallic in mind 24/7; Why not wear a shimmering maxi skirt for day, or pair luxe leather leggings for going out at night? “Metallics have become a fabrication that can actually take you through seasons,” says Susan Asmar, Design and Concept Manager for Exclusive for INTERMIX. “You can wear it to work, out at night—it’s a new staple.”

Here’s where our Exclusive for INTERMIX label comes in. This season, think of us as a one-stop shop to get in on the season’s must-have trend in styles you won’t be able to find anywhere else. “We’re really pushing the envelope,” says Asmar. “The INTERMIX spin—and what everyone tries to keep in mind here—is finding a way to do metallics in way that gives more life to the piece for seasons to come.” In other words, we're making the case for keeping our favorite metallic pieces in rotation beyond the holiday months.

Sources of inspiration ranged from runway to archival imagery to IRL muses, with a focus on innovative ways to incorporate all things shine in a variety of textures and treatments. Keep scrolling for the three key pieces that are topping our wish lists this season, and where we plan on wearing them to.

For the slopes and beyond...

"We developed a silver metallic puffer that really pushed the limits for us," says Asmar. "It takes your outfit to another level." We couldn't agree more. 

For a luxe take on the legging...

A gilded leather legging is comfy enough to wear for day, and bold enough to catch the light at night. “It’s all about doing metallics in a way that’s like, ‘I need this,’ or ‘I can wear it for day or night’". explains Asmar. "The expiration date isn’t January 1st."

For weekend brunch, date night and everywhere in between...

"We’ve incorporated metallic yarns into some of our camis this season. Wear this striped cami under a denim jacket, or wear it out at night with a velvet blazer for a look that's more dressed up."
