One in a Ver­mil­ion

The month of luck and love calls for a colour that sends all the right sig­nals

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

Su­per­si­ti­tion and tra­di­tion dic­tate that red is the colour of luck. While the life-chang­ing pow­ers of a shade are de­bat­able, the month of ro­mance is no time to take risks. It’s rouge or lose, whether you echo Ber­luti’s boys—who strode out in laven­der-pink suits with svelte straw­berry ac­ces­sories, and are the sort of chaps likely to have booked flights to Paris on Valen­tine’s Day—or you chan­nel the tomato-coloured, anorak-wear­ing Her­mès lads. For those fear­ing a case of scar­let fever, Gucci’s claret brogues are a sub­lime ad­junct to a char­coal suit, while hand­ker­chiefs and but­ton­holes from Canali and Lan­vin give an amorous nod to the trend. What­ever you do, you’ve got to get your­self into some cerise chaps—af­ter all, you might get lucky.

Clock­wise from top: Look from Ber­luti re­sort 2016; look from Her­mès re­sort 2016, Gucci brogue; Lan­vin but­ton­hole; Canali pocket square; Ber­luti brief­case
