Pastels, white and beige, denim and (sophisticated) Wild West, strong prints and raw cuts… The spring/summer collections have an air of rough avantgarde and one colour obviously doesn’t fit into this mood: Red. It’s true, Dolce & Gabbana showed some 40s inspired satin skirts with flowery prints, but even here it was more about the flow of the fabric and the botanics than the background shade. And when Mr Schuman posted a picture of a glorious redhead holding a shiny scarlet Louis Vuitton bag it just seemed to accentuate the fact that red is more appropriate for accessoires than for proper dressing these days.
Men might love red (just think of film titles like the 'Woman in Red' and songs like 'Lady in Red', not to mention that every proper sex bomb needs to show herself in a tight red dress from time to time), but what is the average red-blooded male to fashion? Nada, rien, niente…
So what’s your stand on the most extroverted, temperamental, hot and passionate hue? Only for special occasions or an every day colour? Just for handbags, scarves, gloves and Co. or do you like to clad yourself top to toe in the colour of love?
