Tan­ger­ine dreams

Sunday Star-Times - Sunday Magazine - - FASHION WITH KARLYA SMITH -

The rusty, ochre shades that de­sign­ers have been so taken with over the past cou­ple of sea­sons have blos­somed into marigold, tan­ger­ine and car­rot-coloured shades for sum­mer. Th­ese in­cen­di­ary hues aren’t shy. They take their cues from emer­gency vest orange.

Even fash­ion houses like NOM*d and Zambesi, steered by de­sign­ers who are known for their love of black, will dip their clothes in orange, yel­low or pur­ple when it feels right.

This sea­son, NOM*d’s look­book is a riot: pat­terns and more than one zingy colour are mixed with the fre­netic ac­tiv­ity of Loony Tunes and space­ship custom prints.

Paired with black, the power of orange is only high­lighted. Like­wise for shock­ing hues like yel­low, char­treuse or any­thing high­lighter.

A zap of colour will break up the neu­trals we will inevitably pair them with. 1/ Peter Kaiser he­lia pump, $420 from Scarpa
