Metallics for men: Adrien Brody

We’ve seen much in the way of the metallics trend for women, from metallic ballet flats and metallic heels, to metallic leggings. But for men, the trend hasn’t taken off nearly as much.

In fact, away from the runway, we haven’t seen much of metallics on men at all. That is, until Adrien Brody wore a full silver metallic suit to the premiere of The Darjeeling Limited – a move not many male celebrities would be bold enough to attempt.

Aside from having to give him credit on the unique and somewhat daring choice, one would probably have to conclude that metallics in both and jacket and pants is a little much. One or the other would have made for a more fashionable red-carpet outfit, as – much like with women’s – metallics should be worn in moderation.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
