The pre­vail­ing trend in fash­ion this sea­son is red – and it’s no sur­prise that artists, too, are drawn to this pow­er­ful colour of pas­sion. Take Auck­land artist Reece King’s Can Hear It paint­ing, for ex­am­ple, which uses high-con­trast tones to make a strong state­ment.

Luck­ily, there’s no short­age of fab­u­lous red gar­ments from New Zealand brands this sea­son, in­clud­ing Rachel Mills. Team fiery pieces with graphic, lin­ear pants (which also hap­pen to be flat­ter­ingly elon­gat­ing) and you have a dy­namic duo that will take you any­where – just add strik­ing red lip­stick and a clas­sic trench when you step out­side. In­doors, en­sure your home is equally im­pact­ful with de­tailed black and white fur­nish­ings and a healthy stash of gold that can live be­side any out­landish art. This look is not for wall­flow­ers.
