For the Spring/Summer 2013 season, Christopher Bailey went a bit outside of the Burberry Prorsum norm and featured bright metallics as a mainstay in the season's menswear collection.
As a spring/summer collection, the pieces flow perfectly. The Milan fashion show featured a wide array of bright colors, and metallics find their way onto things as big as jackets and as small as collars and even bags. They are balanced out by more subtle colors that could definitely be worn well into the fall.
Although it's not out of the norm for Burberry Prorsum to take a few more risks than the mainline Burberry London; we must admit that metallics were not something that we expected to see from the English brand, however it may prove to be big for this season.
The bright colors and colorblocking techniques have already appeared in womenswear in recent years, and now they've finally made the transition over to menswear. Although we honestly can't imagine very many average Joes rocking the full metallic jacket. You be the judge.
