If this is the first you are hearing about the ‘colour of the season‘ being fire-engine-red/mulberry/burgundy, then you’ve probably been living under a very-unfashionable-rock… That or I guess maybe you did not attend VAMFF earlier this month. Either way, these colours are seriously everything and indeed everywhere right now. Fire engine red is, as far as I am concerned, always in fashion. It may have its moments some seasons more than others, but the colour is a true staple and style classic. All the colour tones and varieties surrounding bright red however are super A/W ’17 and definitely the main colour palette heading down the runway this season.
GOOD EVENING EVERYONE! As someone who usually takes a more tonal/monochromatic approach to fashion, it was kind of a surprise how drawn I was to this bright red trench coat. I’m not sure whether it was the effortless movement, the easy-to-wear texture, or perhaps the coats ability to spin, swoosh and fly around with me as I ‘whip my hair back and forth’ as if I am in some kind of atrociously entertaining music video. Either way, this was a winter statement piece that I couldn’t quite help but get my hands on!
