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..

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..

Some texts are an accent, some are the statement element of the garment, messages can get political or complete satire, texts can be sprayed on, painted, printed, or sewed on. Make a statement this upcoming season and DIY it yourself onto your garment..
