Style Glossary: Lurex


Decorative yarn with a metallic appearance, made of a layer of aluminum between two layers of polyester film, protected by a clear or colored resin coating. I predict it's going to be a huge trend for Spring. If you dig shine, lurex is for you.

Marc Jacob's Spring '09 collection (left) featured countless lurex ensembles.
