Let There Be Brights!

March 4, 2011 § Leave a comment

Fashion of late seems to be all over the place, no? But there does seem to be one trend this season that is hard to avoid: Brights. Electric blues, acid yellow and green, things bordering on neon – it is everywhere.

Tough stuff, especially if you grew up in the eighties and prefer to avoid looking like an extra in a Wham video. But page after page of models styled in retina-searing color caused me to give serious consideration the trend. How could I pull it off without anyone getting hurt?

The more I thought about it, I realized that this trend might be one of the easier ones to follow, provided that one approaches it carefully. Nail polish is a good start, and as long as you don’t put brights with black, the clothing options are manageable.

For me, my feet were where I decided to conduct my initial testing. And as usual, Alber Elbaz did not let me down. In addition to popping shoes into the most beautiful boxes I have ever seen, Lanvin also made my favorite ballet flats in a gorgeous shade of bright pink. Bright enough for now, but complex enough for post-trend use. J’adore!
