This sea­son, yel­low is the warm­est colour

ELLE (Malaysia) - - RADAR -

We love a sea­sonal change in colour as much as the next per­son, but it can be hard to em­brace oxblood and deep pur­ple and inky navy when the sun is blaz­ing and it’s a tem­per­ate 36°C out­side. But this sea­son there’s a new colour in the mix. For the sake of clar­ity we’re call­ing it marigold, but it’s re­ally a spec­trum of shades rang­ing from an earthy mustard to a poppy lemon yel­low, with tones of gold, but­ter­cup and honey in be­tween. Amidst the rich, deca­dent colours we’ve come to ex­pect from Au­tumn/Win­ter, a shot of marigold is like a very wel­come ray of sun­shine.

There are so many beau­ti­ful ways to wear yel­low, but the runways were def­i­nitely push­ing a spe­cific look: head to toe. Whether in a sin­gle piece, like Valentino’s an­kle­graz­ing turtle­neck vel­vet dress, or in Max Mara’s per­fectly co­or­di­nated bouclé suit topped with a high-shine jacket, you’ll get max­i­mum points if you com­mit to the colour. At Cé­line, a cosy marigold wrap coat topped floor-sweep­ing trousers that were just a shade lighter, and Ba­len­ci­aga mixed yel­low-based print and bro­cade for a ful­lon floral shot – def­i­nitely one way to put a spring in your step.

If you’re not ready for that much yel­low, throw some pink into the mix. One of our favourite ways to wear yel­low came from Delpozo, who can al­ways be re­lied upon to de­liver fresh, flower-like looks. There, lemon yel­low peeked out from the lin­ing of a cape-like coat (in Au­tumn’s other big colour, dusty pink), and lay­ered over and un­der aqua blues and rich pur­ples. Or do like Emilio Pucci and go sporty by con­trast­ing with stripes of elec­tric blue, black and white. Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo used the same colour group­ing, adding pur­ple into the mix. And one of the most beau­ti­ful colour com­bi­na­tions was at Burberry, where Christo­pher Bai­ley used strips of marigold snake­skin to ac­cent a shim­mer­ing cop­pery tead­ress. For­get twee – this is proper rock and roll stuff.
