Seven Colours

Seven Colours

>> Why wear just one or two colours when you can shove seven plus into one outfit?  That's really the only thought process behind this image onslaught, triggered by bits and bobs of the following…

…Christopher Kane's S/S 12 resort collection which then led to the acquisition of a vintage Louis Feraud slip dress from the brilliant Thrifted and Modern, Caran D'ache colouring pencils and felt tip pens all in order in the box, 'Oblivion' by Grimes – her voice sounds like a rainbow, lava lamps, blow-up chairs and rainbow hemp clothing from Camden Market, accessories designer Fred Butler and set designer Andy MacGregor and their approaches to working, House of Holland' S/S 12 resort film by Mariano Vivanco, rainbow cakes, upping the saturation and contrast levels on Photoshop, 'Young Luv' by Christian AIDS, Alexander McQueen's S/S 03 rainbow shipwreck dress, bokah lights…

    My summer resolution is to wear more colour. Going rainbow is a big leap, but I recon I could do some of the more washed out colours- I really like the Saunder’s tee-shirt!

    This is pure joy! Somehow ‘teenager’ seems just the right random name for that bright green.

    The Jil Sander shirt is so amazing, I don’t remember seeing this ANYWHERE last year!! Should have known you would buy that Jonathan Saunders t-shirt, I saw it on Net A Porter the other day and bookmarked it just in case there are any left come sale time! Hoping to score some brightly coloured items at the Meadham Kirchhoff sample sale (fingers crossed that there will actually be one!), PLEASE post the invitation if you get sent it!!

    Wow I really love the colours! I utterly adore the dress, it’s so pretty and summery! Gorgeous. I think people need to wear more colours, just because it’s getting into winter doesn’t mean we should stop wearing colours and just wear black.
