Even if you have already surrendered to the light or vibrant shades, keep the dark color card always close at hand. This is so because it is an option without failure. Among the sweethearts of the cool tone pack, the oil-green came to light in the last weeks of fashion. It was a hit in the 1980s, highlight in monochromatic proposals and full of elegance. Recently, Camila and I have chosen looks that show how to bring tonality to different styles. She invested in the short satin dress, with asymmetric hem and long sleeves for a night ensemble. Sophisticated and with that touch of modernity in the right measure. As for my look, I opted for the long style with transparencies and frills on the neckline and waistline. An ideal proposal for the day to day.
In the collections, there are versions that play with the masculine aesthetic to the super feminine ones. For the latest Clare Waight Keller presented at Chloé, for Fall 2017, the composition of shirt with pockets + skinny tailoring pants brings that boyish Parisian vibe. For the ever-sophisticated Elie Saab, oil-green was worn on both the dress and the belt, showing that the combination of materials/textures are always welcome – and the favorites among fashionistas!
For Summer 2019 Self-Portrait, a powerful mix of details including pleats, ruffles, transparencies and laces give the color a touch of sensuality to the short dress. Notice that the interpretation of modeling evidences parts of the body in a very different way. At Alexander McQueen, a combination of structured shape and large parts, such as pockets, transform the model into a piece of desire for the fans of minimalism-chic.
Italian Alberta Ferretti, following the winter premises, presented a green oil maxi coat as a key element of the look, which also features a burgundy hat and boots in earthy tones. For Lanvin, an A-line dress with lightweight fabric and cut-in collar + turtle neck region in two color versions.
