Luxist turns us onto some serious use of metallic pigments. “If you’ve ever felt the need to spend $600 on a pair of jeans you are in luck. Dior designed these ‘radioactive’ men’s jeans that are made of 100% cotton, in a dark wash, with a shiny metallic finish. The five pocket cut and button fly appear pretty standard, as does the slightly tapered leg, so my guess is you are paying for the unique silver ‘radioactive’ look, unless they also repel spills…. “
I’m sure if they repel but they may cause some to step away in fear of contact. Available online and in Dior boutiques for 600$US.
