Hot, Hot Colors…
The recent show I saw at Siam Paragon reminds me of seminal artist, Piet Mondrian, who used grids of blazing colour to express his ideas of balance, in a way that influences us all to this day.DV
How to wear hot colors this Spring? Everywhere! From flashes of fluoro plastered, literally, in sticky patches all over your body, to a neon, under-lighted disco floor, a few shuffles of the Pantone cards or your favorite gel pens should give you a color scheme to see you through till Fall, pastels be darned.
(We’ll have to face up to them soon, I know, but pastels always remind me of blue-rinses. Hey ho, I’ll look for some good combos and report back. Wish me luck.)
“But hot colors are too overwhelming for my delicate complexion/local, watery sunshine/half-lit bedroom,” you say? Pah! The more the merrier, mix ’em up and bring a reluctant smirk to your disapproving granny’s face, before she has a rummage through her purse for a nice pale primrose scarf. It’ll be worth be worth the investment in neon sharpies alone.
The fluouro Mondrian-themed floor was lit from beneath. I’d love to have a room like this, for recreational purposes. And a glitter ball. That yellow tulle tutu-like frock would be great for entertaining chez moi, in my private club… *Starry eyes*.
These hot orange strapped corset-peplum-belts are cool – I mean hot. If a little unforgiving for the chocoholic styliste. Best switch to fruitarianism.
Love the canary yellow sock and multicolored plaster combo, and the glitter snakeskin booties.
That girl. To me her ennui is so.. PARIS. And that’s hot.
