I opened my September Vogue magazine and was thrilled to read the headline on page 578 – Out with Tedious Black! Writer Sarah Mower goes on to say that among the fashion crowd, the race is on, not to see who can wear the highest heels but who dares to slip a neon-lime clutch under the arm of a sunflower-yellow jacket for example. At first, fashion made an attempt at labeling this phenomenon as “Colour Blocking.”
“I’ve never understood what that means—other than being a timid term for a sub-trend no one initially believed had any potential because women had been hooked on black for decades,” says Sarah.
We all need to hear this now, the sooner the better. “Only one, maximum two, giant fashion changes happen per decade.” The reason this trend is so important is because of the way it’s permeating tailoring—jackets, coats and trousers, which have been set to default black since the 80s.”
What colour would you buy if you could find it?
ps. I hope all of you in the East are safe and intact from the Hurricane! xoxo Maria
