Black is an irreplaceable color and total black combinations are always great but why not “breaking” the darkness with some discreet and catchy details? Texture mixing, especially the leather-denim combination, is always a plus and a big trend for fall/winter 2012-2013. I recommend it to the playful boys and girls, and for the fearless ones, you can mix more than two textures (tweed-leather-denim).
Last but not least, here they come metallics. They give you the astronaut, lack of gravity sense. We saw them in Blumarine Fall ’12, YSL Fall ’12, Giuseppe Zanotti and more. Use metallic colors anywhere. Metallic tops, accessories and shoes.
I chose the Givenchy metallic sneakers because I wanted to give an edgy touch making the shoes stand out of the rest outfit. The bracelet was put there to play with denim, leather and become the third texture for the mix.

Go on and mix mix mix! Weat metallics. Any color, any form, anytime. You will definitely look space great!
