Metallics were shining brightly on the runways of Milan this past week, continuing a trend we saw in London and New York before that. While the word "metallic" usually means hard and shiny, the offerings on the runways were decidedly more soft and fluid.

Sequins added shine to the brighter colored garments in many of the spring 2012 shows, but Italian designers showed their deliciously butter-soft metallics in earthy tones and soft pastels. There's nothing like a shiny combination of hard and soft.
