re­think red

Diana Vree­land once claimed to have spent her life pur­su­ing the per­fect red and Au­drey Hep­burn be­lieved there was a shade of red for ev­ery woman. Ba­len­ci­aga (via Demna Gvasalia’s un­ex­pect­edly awe­some disco pants) and Cé­line (in the form of a di­aphanous evening dress) both chose to bring out the very bright­est ver­sion – a red that can only be de­scribed as flam­ing. At Chris­tian Siri­ano’s Spring 2017 show, ev­ery­thing from sun­glasses and head­wear to evening dresses and heels were ren­dered in this flam­boy­ant shade. Os­car de la Renta fol­lowed suit with siren-like cock­tail dresses and evening­wear. Nom*d got in on the ac­tion too, back­ing a black check with an ex­tra­bright crim­son. Sure, it takes con­fi­dence to stand out in a colour this loud (and you may have to leave the disco pants to the cat­walk mod­els), but take it as a sign that it’s time to re­tire as a wall­flower. If you feel your­self re­sist­ing, per­haps keep your look neu­tral and use the colour as an ac­cent in­stead.
