LACQUER AND SATIN
“The sheen of satin to lacquer finishes adds real electricity to spring/summer. Lacquer finishes are found on resin jewelry and handbag closures to display walls in fashion installations. Satin in the form of fabric or ribbon embodies an uber-sensual quality that is the perfect foil to all of the un-dyed and natural cottons and linens worn head to toe for the season. Satin shoes, handbags and details on garments add the perfect finishing touch to any ladylike look. Consider high-velocity color to low-luster neutrals in satin to lacquer mediums.”
