Champion’s Comeback

Athletic streetwear brand Champion has re-gained notoriety thanks to the athleisure aesthetic movement that is on full force.

The Importance of Red

This week we’ll be discussing how wearing the color red makes us so confident, it’s meaning and the psychology behind it. Red is the color of nobility, it’s the color most used on flags, it’s the color of brand success (Coca-Cola) and of feminism (like red lipstick). Red can make us feel empowered and passionate, Christian Dior once said “it’s a very energetic and beneficial color, it’s the color of life and it suits any skin tone”. Red has been dominating the S/S 18′ runway and the streets, the color has been emerging from Asian streetwear being used as a bold statement color that’ll grab your attention. Red will be transitioning into this year’s A/W season so watch out..

Work that Patch

A reoccurring trend throughout the years is patchwork, every time more elevated and modern than the last season. Patchwork is needlework in which small pieces of cloth in different designs, colors or textures are sewn together into a one of a kind garment. Luxury brands like Chloé, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent have featured patchwork on their collections as well as the streetwear brand “Supreme” which released a collection  that included pieces made with this technique. Patchwork can be used with anything imaginable, denim, plaid, floral, color blocking, you name it, this technique isn’t going anywhere anytime soon…

Color of 2018: Ultraviolet

Ultraviolet has been named the color of 2018 and what an electric shade of purple it is! This bold tone sets the mood for a modern technology driven 2018 and stars have embraced it. Style icon Rihanna has embraced it creating a new lip color for her Fenty collection and featuring it in her PUMAXFENTY SS18 collection this past fashion week season. Something tells me that this vivid color isn’t going anywhere..
