Is sil­ver a colour or an at­ti­tude? By Li Ying Lim.

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - News -

A pseu­do­sci­en­tific hue; a silk screen for the eyes; an en­vi­ous glow in the com­plex­ion, as if moon­lit – the colour sil­ver is an atyp­i­cal evo­ca­tion that es­capes def­i­ni­tion. Think galac­tic ad­ven­tures in space­suits, or fu­tur­ist vi­sions of Cour­règes fash­ion, and yet beauty has rein rein­ter­preted the me­te­oric shade with much ro­man­tic ro­man­ti­cism – the win­try face of a Brontë novel walked down the sea­son’s run­ways with gauze-like eyese and sil­ver-halo hair. Ut­terly con­tem­pora con­tem­po­rary, too, there is some­thing so lav­ish aboutabou un­cap­ping a sil­ver fla­con cap and spritz­ing o on a fra­grance that hints of tin­gling sen­sa­tions sen­sa­tions. As Lord By­ron wrote in his aptly ti­tled poe poem, The Sil­ver Pen­dant Neck­lace, “And all that’s best of dark and bright; Meet in her asp as­pect and her eyes”. Sil­ver is, ver­i­ta­bly, the colou colour of an ex­quis­ite fox.
