We Are Totally Baffled By Burberry's Metallic Menswear Collection

When you think “Burberry,” chances are classic trenches or the brand’s famous check pattern comes to mind.But Burberry Prorsum decided to go in a very different direction with this season’s coats, shirts, and t-shirts by making their designs with shiny metallic cloth in electric colours.

The new Metallic Runway collection is made with Italian foil-bonded silk or cotton that requires hand washing. Made for both their men’s and women’s spring lines, the sheen is available in six shades, including pale green, electric blue, and lavender.

Since it’s Burberry, we’re sure that the quality is impeccable, but these look more like cheap plastic than what the expensive $350-$2,995 price range would suggest.

The shirts look like they were made from tin foil instead of foil-bonded cotton.

The up-close shots don't do the shirts any more justice.

Instead, they look like something out of the '90s.

Here's the green version.

Classy look, bro.

And for those summer days, a t-shirt button down.

The striped t-shirt is at least slightly better.

This electric blue trench coat is $2,995.


Women weren't safe, either.
