Another day, another Raf Simons collaboration, this time with Doc Martens. We can’t wait till this one hits the stores, the metallic tones work so well with the hardwearing DM leather and I’m sure they’ll look even better with wear. Our favourite piece is the two-tone boot, pewter and gold never looked so good. Stick around to see our previews from all the press days tomorrow, including Billionaire Boys Club, Ermenegildo Zegna and more.

We also love the pointed shoes underneath. So chunky! So lace-y! So buckle-y!

Clarks Originals Desert Boot goes metal

The Desert Boot is a design classic and is one of those items which never really goes out of style. I recently saw a well-dressed chap on the street sporting a suede pair with some tracksuit-bottom style cuffed trousers and it made a great outfit.

Clarks Originals
have some great traditional colours available for Autumn, their Desert Boot comes in cream, tan and ebony. They’ve also updated the look and brought out a pair in shimmering peach or silver and they’re about a hundred times better looking than they sound on paper.

The peach pair would look great with some faded grey jeans and in my dreams I’d love to see the silver pair as part of an all-metallic outfit… What? Pictures after the jump.

mascaleros silver trainer b store.jpgFormal shoes have eclipsed trainers in the style stakes for a good while now but sometimes you just want to cocoon yourself in comfort.

b Store‘s Mascaleros silver hi-tops are comfy and plain enough to pass everyday muster while the silver finish adds a bit of a stylistic flourish. They’re reduced to £74.50 on the site and will make even the most simple combination of jeans and t-shirt look flash.

Because The Tan Isn’t Bad Enough; Cristiano Ronaldo Does Silver Short-Shorts!

By Will Reid on July 24th, 2008

ronaldo(2).jpgWay back when (honestly Cristiano,) at the peak of the short-shorts trend, Brandish was rife with talk of Wham!, a model short-shorts wearer and metallic fabric. In an awfully weird way, Cristiano Ronaldo looks like a mixture of about three weeks worth of posts.

In case you haven’t already been blinded my that horrific pic to the left, I’m talking about this week’s latest fashion crime: those tight, silver short-shorts. Ronaldo was snapped while shopping at the Christian Audigier boutique in Beverly Hills, perfectly tangoed and crutch-ridden. Unlike that signature white suit, I can’t even bring myself to jokily utter that infamous question- Yay or Nay?

Lanvin metallic deck shoes

By admin on May 16th, 2008

lanvin deck shoes matches peach grey.jpgI’ve only recently got over my deck shoe inverse snobbery, which makes it even harder to figure out whether these metallic Lanvin deck shoes are the most awesome shoe ever, or just really lame. They’re just so over the top I think I’m in love.

Obviously grey suede and peach metallic leather were never going to be suitable for actually wearing on a boat, so if you feel like splashing £465 out on a pair forego any cargo pants, wraparound shades or polar fleeces. Team them instead with slim fit white jeans (yes, seriously) and a grey v-neck for a neutral take on the ’80s Club Tropicana look.


Nanny State get in on the silver act

By admin on April 1st, 2008

nannystatesilver.jpgThe best thing about metallic silver trainers is that, despite being metallic silver, they don’t look OTT. Quite a feat.

However, if you point some very bright lighting at it, it will look very, very shiny – which is why these Nanny State’s look quite so shiny. In person, they’re just the right shade.

Metallic Silver Springcourts

By admin on March 26th, 2008


The whole metallic thing never really took off – mainly because most people didn’t want to look like an extra from a Kraftwerk video. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t some great metallic pieces to be found, like these metallic
silver Springcourts

Remember when we said that Springcourt trainers were the most comfortable trainers in the world?
That’s still true. The silver colouring means that these could also function as
a splash of colour in an outfit. So for 110 Euros, you’ve got the most comfortable
trainers in the world in metallic silver. What more could you want?


Neil Barrett Silver Shoes

By admin on March 3rd, 2008

Silver_shoesAttention! Silver shoes, people! Don’t you just wish you were a lady shoe so you could be these bad boys’ bitch? No? Don’t lie!
I think these are just pure hotness.  Nice job Neil Barrett. I love the scalloped edges and the perforated leather, which make for a very modern take on the classic brogue. And the attention to detail seems exceptional – witness the single horizontal bar tack stitch just below the laces. And, of course, they’re silver. Just try and stop me from matching them with a silver belt. They’ve not been shipped yet but they’ll be available soon from Yoox.


Metallic Converse trainers

By admin on February 11th, 2008


A wise man once said, ‘you can never have enough Converse all stars’. Clearly he was wrong, but you could always do with adding some metallic colours to your shoe wardrobe. Getting a pair of Converse in gold or silver should set you on the right path.

I know what you’re thinking. They look too span-dangly. Don’t worry, they’re actually quite understated for a metallic gold trainer. Well, they as understated as a pair of gold trainers can be, you’ll still stand out from pretty much everyone with these on your feet. But that’s a good thing.


Gold Shellys shoes

By ShinyMedia on May 2nd, 2007


Just in case you didn’t know here’s a little reminder: metallics are way in this summer. From Comme des Garcons’ gold saturated show, to Preston Ordinary Boys’ strop on Never Mind The Buzzcocks in a silver sequinned Burberry cardigan metallics are everywhere. If you feel like incorporating a little glitz into your wardrobe these gold trainers from Shellys (£70) are perfect, the slightly burnished colour makes them a lot more wearable than yellowish golds and they look very discreet when teamed with jeans.
