Street Style: Red & Yellow

Fashion Week seems like an age ago, and I am very bold that I’m only getting around to this post now. I posted about the fasharazzi, and how odd the circus at Somerset House is, but in fact I am an awful hypocrite because I was there, papping away myself. As I noted at fashion week in September, I have a tendency to crop people’s heads when I shoot street style. I am not entirely sure why I do this, perhaps it is  a reaction to the blatant showing off that some people carry on with, but it is meant with no malice or conscious thought. I guess I just like the anonymous aesthetic.

Either way, I unconsciously shot a colour story – red and yellow were the two key colours that caught my eye. The message? This summer it’s all about hyper-bright block colour? I’m not actually sure, but this is what the kids in London were wearing at Fashion Week Fall 2012…

Yes I know technically this is closer to green, but close enough. Plus, she’s wearing Acne shoes.

All of the beautiful colours…

Although there are reports that there is more snow on the way (I have even bought those snow grip things just in case!), I have started thinking ahead to Spring Summer collections, and what I might wear once it finally warms up a bit.

I noticed a little bit of a colour trend in a few of the shows, and I’m really into it. A combination of tan, black and blue, it’s a development of the camel/denim that’s been going on for the last two seasons. Observe…

Diane Von Furstenburg

Edun

It’s a slightly darker twist, bringing indigo in instead of the lighter denim blues. I’ve always been a fan of black and blue when it’s done right, and I love the darker sienna-y/ochre-y hues as a change from the lighter caramels and tans. I am gonna start stockpiling now.

*As a side note, shorts and no tights…I can’t wait for those two weeks we call summer to be able to wear shorts and no tights…
