My MANy Bags Trendspotting #204

Below: Burberry Prorsum SS2013 Metallic coloured ready to wear pieces are some of the most outstanding of the season. However, they take a lot of guts and savvy taste to wear them well. What do you think of Brad Goreski's take on the Fuchsia Metallic Trench Coat? I loved his look!

Metallic colours is undeniably one of the most visible trends for Spring Summer 2013. It’s an outstanding style to adopt but you need guts and savvy ‘mix and match’ taste to pull it off well. Too overdone and you look like a leftover Christmas tree. It’s definitely a a thin line between success or being a wannabe. However, when you succeed, you are bound to leave a positive impression:-P

I don’t know about you... but I love Brad Goreski’s outfit of Burberry Prorsum’s attention grabbing SS2013 metallic trench coat to the recent Carolina Herrera show during New York Fashion Week FW2013. This much metallic colour on a coat is challenging enough, but fuchsia colour just makes wearing the piece treading on the verge of 'tackydom'. It’s definitely not an easy style to get right. However, Brad’s bubbly personality, good looks and clever mixing of pieces in the same colour family meant everything co-exists in a visually pleasing manner. I love the deep purple shirt accented with a black bow-tie and black trousers, leaving room for the metallic fuchsia trench coat to shine without competition. His preppy outlook also helps to ground the crazy statement piece, reining in the look's bling and steering away from trying too hard. Just the right amount of attention for occassions like Fashion Week.
