Throw out the fashion rule book with SS17’s brightest and boldest colour-clashing trend
Words Joy Montgomery
SS17 fashion trend alert: toss out the style rule book and ignore everything you’ve ever been told about ‘clashing colours’, because red and pink are getting cosy this season. Whether it’s fuschia and russet or blush and ruby, these vibrant hues can play-off each other perfectly when handled with a contemporary touch.
Net-a-Porter’s SS17 campaign features willowy models colour clashing in perfectly tailored pink and red pieces, rendered in luxe fabrics and languorous silhouettes. This is the key to working eye popping brights: layering and draping clean cuts with minimal fuss, keeping surfaces planar – think geometric colour blocking – and garment fit loose. We love Attico’s two-tone wrap satin dress, which totally nails the trend by balancing vibrant hues and a nipped-in waist with fashion-forward full-length sleeves and calf-grazing skirt.
