More than ever, designers are unabashedly employing the glamorous touch of metallic fabrics to jazz up their spring–summer collections. Whether worn full on, as with a suit, or combined with other fabrics when offered in separate pieces such as jackets, shirts or pants, the new metallic trend is a refreshing statement of luxury.
