Transparency is ‘in’ for 2018.
The fashion search engine Tagwalk estimated that transparent looks accounted for 15% of those in the Spring/Summer 2018 shows. They appeared mostly as accessories, particularly rainwear. I was crazy about Chanel’s clear plastic hat (see above) that was shown in the Spring/ Summer 2018 fashion shows, but was unable to find any similar hats less than the $1,150 that Dior was charging! Other than my failure at coming up with a suitable substitute for the Chanel hat. I did find other intriguing transparent plastic accessories.
