BRIGHT SPARKS

Show­go­ers say yes to neon ex­cess

Harper’s Bazaar (Australia) - - Style -

The re­sort show cir­cuit is a whirl­wind of hol­i­day-wor­thy des­ti­na­tions (re­sort 2019 fea­tured Chanel and Dior in Paris, Mercedes-benz Fash­ion Week Aus­tralia in Syd­ney, Gucci in Provence) and, as such, lucky at­ten­dees of­ten opt for a cer­tain type of look — think the three Fs: fem­i­nine, flo­ral or floaty. But this sea­son, show­go­ers cut through their dreamy at­tire with flashes of acid. At MBFWA, neon-soled Nike Air Max 270s were styled with retro-in­spired Zim­mer­mann flo­rals; a la­dy­like flounce skirt was paired with a high­lighter yel­low Ba­len­ci­aga tri­an­gle duf­fle. Si­enna Miller toted a bright blue Art Nou­veau-style hat-box bag at Louisvuit­ton, and more than one guest ar­rived at Chanel’s ex­trav­a­ganza at the Grand Palais in traf­fic-cone orange. Neons were the break­out colour trend from the A/W 2018 col­lec­tions, so it’s per­haps no sur­prise that the fash­ion set is dip­ping their toes in now. Con­sider this a vivid warn­ing sign that there are more block brights ahead. – Clare Ma­clean
