Pillar box chic


I bet you weren't expect that! And on a Friday of all merry things! Well, I wasn't very well going to put up a sign now, was I, I mean, what would it have said? 

'Beware, neutrals off sick today. Blinding red will be covering until further notice.' 

Come to think of it, that works quite nicely. Next time, pinky swear. Per usual, though, I digress.
Indeed, now that I have burned your eye sockets out, the polite thing to do would be to take a minute to discuss what prompted me to do so. 

Tibi can plead guilty. Had Amy Smilovic not graced her Cruise lookbook with that column of red, I may not have been inclined to mess around so freely with my usual palette inclinations. In fact, I feel like head-to-toe color is the unsung star of the catwalk this season. Sure, minimalism is all around, black & white is King, bla bla bla. But that has been the case for a good few season now. Single bright color, on the other hand, is more a thing of the 80s, along with power shoulder pads and matchy-matchy accessories. 

But then for Spring Summer 2013, you've got Lanvin sending saphir blue trackies down the runway, and Michael Kors with his twin-sets in Her Majesty's favourite hue (daffodil, duh!). And the Tibi red suit. So I got brain washed. Lady in Red, Scarlet woman, Convict on the run.. I'll take the heat - this trend has me all fired up! 

I'm wearing: H&M Trend trousers and top - Jimmy Choo iPad case and pumps (or try these)

  21. Je n'aurais pas porté le rouge en total look, en revanche il s'accorde à merveille au nude ! j'aurais donc plutôt mis une autre pièce qui soit raccord avec les chaussures (dont je suis très jalouse soit dit en passant ;)

  31. It's crazy because of its color, but at the same time very simple because of its clean fit. Very balanced with those nude shoes, the perfect pick if you ask me...
