It's All About Color

Jul 10, 2010

Cathy Horyn from the New York Times  has written about the recent couture shows and the latest trend is one of the best things that has happened to fashion-"lots of color is the new black."
And I think this is true. This trend is evident in Christian Dior's bright floral show, Valentino's light pastel line, and Elie Saab's couture show in earthy hues. It is all about the color as Horyn said: "At Dior there was only a smudge of black...at Chanel, too, black was kept to a minimum...".
I, for one, like neutral colors and bright colors alike, but I think brighter might be better this year. At times, fashion can look too bleak and dull-but I think it might be time for a change, and I believe that the fashion world thinks so, too.
