One of the major spring summer 2011 trends – neons – get really flamboyant. They either appear in monochrome outfits which is already fashionably courageous or on the other hand in eye-catching combos. Grassy green gets mixed and matched with fuchsia and orange, fluorescent yellow with pink, indigo with red. Colour block appears in a modern reinterpretation.
Any questions? I’m answering in advance: there are NO GUIDELINES! If you’re asking yourself what made designers go to such colourful extends there’s a funny story told by Belgian designer Raf Simons (creative director for the Jil Sander label). He said got inspired with mellow shades of his favourite French cakes. Yes, fashion and cakes have a lot in common, see: Sex and The City.
Statement colour blocking is not only reserved for a day (meaning for stopping traffic). As seen in: Marc Jacobs, Sonia Rykiel, Loewe, Prada, Nina Ricci, Jil Sander, Akris, neons appear in a luxurious version perfect for the evening. Of course if you dare to illuminate the night for instance in a neon colour block dress. Remember: bright is fun so why don’t you let yourself play around the clock?
