They we're actually a cotton/metal blend I believe. It was sort of crunchy to the touch and was supposed to break in. A fair bit of the collection was done in the fabric, so I would expect to see it in the near future. You couldn't really even see it in some lights, but in others it would show up a fair bit. I was hoping for more of the plain twills or seersucker that we saw in ss09, but it wasn't apart of the collection. I think thats fine and things need to continue to move, but I felt like where ss09 had some of their best pieces in simple fabrics that made them must-haves, this collection takes a bit more of a chance and due to the fabrics and patterns, there aren't as much of those pieces.
