Shock­ing Day-Glo hues make for a bold fash­ion state­ment in con­ser­va­tive times.

Female (Singapore) - - CONTENTS -

The out­ra­geously vivid shades punc­tu­at­ing the Fall/Win­ter 2018 col­lec­tions can be, well, shock­ing. Long-sleeved tees and coat lin­ings the colour (and fuzzi­ness) of Sesame Street char­ac­ters at Ba­len­ci­aga. These high­lighter-hued ny­lon parkas and match­ing bucket hats at Prada (which also ren­dered fem­i­nine, ’40s-in­spired coats and dresses in the same Day-Glo tones). How­ever play­ful, fash­ion’s re­cent ex­per­i­men­ta­tion with colours – pas­tels in S/S ’18, un­ex­pected com­bos in F/W ’17 – did not pre­pare us for this, and per­haps that’s the point. Like in cur­rent af­fairs, con­ser­vatism in style still runs high. At least here’s one way in which any­one can make a state­ment.
