‘Red is the great clarifier – bright, cleansing and revealing. It makes all colours beautiful. I can’t imagine becoming bored with red – it would be like becoming bored with the person you love’ – Diana Vreeland
Red is this seasons statement colour. Red is not only festive and a perfect autumnal shade, but it is a key for ‘power dressing‘. The Aw17 catwalks brought us several key trends including block colour dressing in bright pinks and reds. Designers such as Fendi and Valentino both had bold shades of red as part of their collections.
Fendi AW17 Ready-to-Wear collection. Here the clean cut, tailored red coat is paired with red stiletto red boots. Dressing entirely in red is a key AW17 look to try.
Valentino AW17 Ready-to-Wear collection. Here, the paneling and lace gives a more feminine and gentle twist on the red trend. There are many ways to wear red this season.
