Menswear in metallic petrol, pink, green, and 'dusty garnet'

On 23 June 2012, Burberry presented the new Menswear Spring/Summer 2013 collection on the catwalk during Milan Men's Fashion Week (23 - 26 June).
Center pieces of the Burberry Menswear SS2013 'Come Rain or Shine' collection are bomber leather jackets in metallic color combination petrol blue (sleeves)/green or yellow (sleeves)/orange (video min. 9:33) and the label's signature piece, the trench coat in metallic pink silk. And then there is this knitwear cardigan in metallic rose-fuchsia, the color's name is 'dusty garnet' (video min. 8:38; on the image below, the model right from Christopher Bailey). Burberry combines the shiny metallic material with woolen and/or printed counterparts such as metallic blue five pocket jeans in combination with a summer tweed jacket and shirt with wild-geometrical diamond print (video min. 5:50).

The 'Tweetwalk' is an invention of Burberry. In partnership with Twitter, the label published live impressions over the short message media for the first time in September 2011; in February 2012, the animated Tweetwalk with images of every look followed. In June 2012, it was the fourth time that Burberry has sent 'Twit pics' from backstage before the fashion items were presented on the runway.
