I am rapidly falling for the sugary hues popping up all over the catwalks for s/s 2010. With names such as papaya whip, apricot, blush pink and strawberry cream, each colour sounds as delicious as it looks.
Is anyone else in awe after viewing the new Burberry Prorsum (above) and Jonathan Saunders shows? I had actually been in the making of a skirt consisting of a cotton base with jersey gathered into the seams, twisting in the middle and returning to the seam just below where they began, embellished with a fine brass chain peeping through amongst the layers. I was loving it up until the point when I saw Bailey’s exceedingly good looking twists. Back to the subject of colours, powder blue is amongst one of my favourites so far. I also can’t stop thinking about the cool shade of porcelain blue Erin Fetherston used for a loosely fitted silk dress or that timeless blouse complete with peep-hole detailing. My mind often brings up flashes of visuals related to whatever I’m viewing, this time happened to be Chabrol’s Les biches, 1968. So here I present to you my favourite hues of blue, Erin’s catwalk beauties, a few film stills and music courtesy of Au Revoir Simone.
