The metals have it, but gold and silver are definitely the hottest colors for Spring 2009. Brushed, faded and yellow golds, shiny pewter and charcoal greys are all new versions of silver and gold seen on spring 2009 runways. Soft and slinky, cut out and constructed, designers are manipulating the trend into modern masterpieces. Dipped to create an hombre effect and used as a base with applied prints, pretty much anything goes this season as long as the color isn’t traditional.

There is nothing mellow about this yellow. Prada brightens up runways in a luminous gold, crinkled dress paired with matching accessories.
