NOT ALL NEU­TRALS ARE CRE­ATED EQUAL

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Fashion -

There’s more to camel than meets the eye. Its vari­ants range from slightly milky cof­fee to the sub­tlest pinky tau­pes, as seen at Gucci and Alexan­der McQueen. “Pow­dery pinks are a gor­geous way to break up navy or black,” says Ruth Chap­man, a co-founder of Match­es­fash­ion.com. Not to men­tion that they’re much softer than white. But why stop there? If grey is your be all and end all, try sil­ver for a change, which also hap­pens to look great with camel. The fresh­est neu­tral, how­ever, is khaki. It works with just about ev­ery­thing – as, strangely, does cobalt. Les­son: Treat neu­trals as colour and colour as neu­trals (why can’t elec­tric blue be a base?). Neu­trals shouldn’t flat­ten but ex­alt.
