Traditionally, Pantone brings it’s Fashion Color Report a preview with the colors that will imprint the trends for next year. For this season, the publication followed the trend of “see now, buy now” and, based on the latest fashion shows, the color cards that prevailed on the runways were selected.
Among the shades, blue is one of them, which is responsible for inspiring not only tranquility, but also strength and optimism.
One of the factors in the choice of color that most caught my attention was the connection to the genderless movement, which has influenced a lot in recent fashion seasons.
One of the ways of addressing the tone in ensembles is to go for monochrome compositions. Camila Coelho used the technique of the ton sur ton, bringing the pastel blue of the Revolve top and a lighter shade for the high waist Zara pants. For details, the color also sets the tone in her Elena Ghisellini clutch.
In a more relaxed version, the game of overlapping was used by Alexander Wang, Stella McCartney, Michael Kors and Cèline in their proposals for Summer 2017, bringing the casualness of jeans mixed with other fabrics such as cotton and silk.
Along with denim, the hue Niagra is versatile and ideal for countering the pale and suave shades by balancing joviality with maximum elegance.
On the runways, the blues gain an abundance of tones. Celeste, royal, and cobalt, are some examples that colored the mood of the moment.
While Dries Van Noten gains a vibrant look, putting the color on the position as the protagonist, Maison Valentino matches the refreshing blue to more closed shades in more elaborate looks.
In Paris, the palette colored the oversized production of French designer Vetements. With genderles reference, maximized tailored pieces gained cutouts and strategic openings, bringing the shades of blue in utility style.
Whether in a subtle version, as in deep tones, blue is able to highlight any piece and bring elegance under a young and modern look.
The cyan blue – a shade next to ice – was my festive dress code choice for Lala Noleto’s wedding. My long dress, by Brazilian designer Tanden, gained even more sophistication thanks to the minimalism and temporality of the color.
