It all started with Raf Simon’s debut collection for Calvin Klein; the brand's PVC raincoats became an instant—almost viral—favorite amongst fashion’s elite. Since then, all things shiny and plastic have taken the fashion world by storm.
Fast-forward to now, and this trend is alive and well. We’re seeing it in various forms just about everywhere, from the runways to the streets. Chanel, Balmain, and Prabal Gurung sent clear PVC shoes down the runway, while Valentino, Céline, and Altuzarra featured see-through bags of all shapes and sizes. In terms of ready-to-wear, look no further than Marc Jacobs’ shiny, transparent jackets or the influx of clear plastic raincoats currently hitting shelves. And then there’s the presence of vinyl—seen both on the runways and on this season’s crop of street style stars currently attending the Fall 2018 fashion shows.
Below, we rounded up 16 perfectly plastic pieces to sprinkle into your spring wardrobes. From entirely see-through pants and bags that leave little to the imagination to the shiniest vinyl skirts and jackets, we’ve got you covered (well, partially).
