Seven Colours Take 2

>>I was going to make it my mission to do a rainbow-themed post on an annual basis but time has flown by and it’s been three whole years since I expressed my love for all things seven coloured.  This time round though, I’ve beefed up the meat on my rainbow wardrobe with not one but two technicolour dream coat/jackets thanks to the appropriately named ‘Hendrix’ coat from Peter Pilotto’s S/S 15 collection and a Comme des Garcons A/W 13jacket featuring artwork by Dan Michiels found for a song in Tokyo’s Rag Tag .  I’ll repeat what I said three years ago – why indeed wear just the one or two colours when you can have seven or more on jostling around on the body?  Incidentally many a rainbow-based image has spilled over from the art and illustration world to set the mood.  Can you taste the rainbow… ?

P.S. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat (with Jason Donovan…) was the first ever musical I saw on stage on a school trip.  Coincidence?  I think not…
