Let’s be honest, is there a more powerful color than red? There are so many references that we have today, especially in fashion, brands that are investing more and more in its various shades to convey the message of strength and seduction. A couple of examples? The signature outsole models by Christian Louboutin carries the personality of carmine, which is even more stylish in contrast with the various materials used in pumps or sandals. Valentino always brings red in classic and restructured versions – with emphasis on the accessories. Now, think that the trend is to go around wearing looks in all red.
Here, two cool ways to create modern and elegant productions. Camila went for this dress furrowed at the waist, with an asymmetric skirt and long sleeves. See how the piece molded her body, even with this more flowy shape. To cast off, the white boots, which are everything this season. In my vision, an overlay of textures and tones, which mixes cashemere, leather and red-orange to terra-cotta red. The greatest deal is to play with all the possibilities – with wide and fitted models, a chromatic gradient and texture. I chose the a short cape + sweater + pantacourt to brighten the winter in Paris. As for my feet, I went for boots with patchwork which repeats some shades from the red family (dark red, earthy and orange).
On the runways, ladies in red! Italian Max Mara presented various super elegant combinations of red. Of all, my favorite is the one that matches the turtleneck sweater + velvet skirt + leather purse with shearling details. Now in Dior’s 2018 Resort collection, the mood of the Californian country flowy long models, as this red with a rounded V neckline. which represents very well the style of Maria Grazia Chiuri.
In Jason Wu, a classic coat, those with retro shape, brought a lady like vibe for the contemporary woman, with pumps with dorsal aspect of the feet a little more covered and red lipstick. In the combination of the chromatic family, Oscar de la Renta brought in different vibrations in orange pants, to give a young and fresh attitude.
With more loose styles, Jil Sander proposed a cool and comfortable style, which I saw a lot in the streets of Paris, with loose liners, elongated sleeves (those that go beyond the wrist) and skirts with a more fitted waistband. In Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld created exactly the opposite for its Millennial. Transparency and a thousand details (between furrows and applications) fluttering and powerful dresses on the winter runway.
