If there’s one thing we adore about the Spring Summer seasons, it’s the abundance of colour. This year, more than the recent years, designers have gone over the top with colours and the colour blocking trend have taken off – from the runways right into the racks of high street labels like Topshop and Zara. We’re not complaining at all! In fact, we’re rejoicing! Nothing quite like a fresh burst of colour to put a spring in your step.
Colour blocking is big this season. And in 2011, it’s bright – very bright; with designers such as Jil Sander, Prada, Christopher Kane and Louis Vuitton all pushing this trend.
Our top tip: If the thought of clashing primary colours and acid brights together is a little daunting, introduce colour blocking into your wardrobe by mixing accessories and one bright item of clothing with some neutral shades. For example, team cream chinos with a red blouse and a colourful belt. Or, pop by our store and try these shoes from United Nude and Pons Quintana [that will be in store very soon!] on for size – they’ll add a pop of colour and it’s a good way to ease yourself into the colour blocking trend!
