What used to be beige/white in the kitchen like the oven, microwave and refrigerator is nowadays coloured in metallic silver in most contemporary homes. During the second half of the 90s silver became the symbol of progression, the future and pretty much defined the word modern. Over night a black 26 inch Philips CRT TV looked plain dull next to a 32 inch wide screen Sony TV. Suddenly any merchandise that wasn’t silver looked prehistoric and uncool. Thankfully the colour didn’t hijack our wardrobes making everybody walking around like seasoned meat ready to be laid in an oven. Undeniably funky the fella pictured managed to revive the forgotten aluminum jacket in a very charming manner. Looking a partially opened piece of caramel wrapped in a metallic foil this is an example of someone taking wearing something cool from the past without appearing like a desperate fashion guru trying to start a trend.
