Spring 2013 Fashion Week–On the runways this season, designers have really put their pedals to the metal for Spring 2013, amping up everyone’s favorite leather treatment: metallic. Mirror-shine, high-gloss metallics, whether in silver, pewter, copper, gold–as well as the increasingly popular iridescent “oil slick” treatments–add just enough futuristic twist to move this trend forward.
