Nothing interests us more than outlining the colors of this season. During the fashion month, SS20 designers deviated from a neutral palette based on the basics they adopted a year ago, instead of using juicy, fertile, and sweet colors that were good enough to eat. We may have stayed at home for the foreseeable future, but who doesn’t want serotonin to improve mood? From thin lemons and satsuma sorbets to the soft spearmint and lavender fields, there is a nuance to every taste. That is why we photograph objects found throughout the house to reflect our current color atmosphere.
Pantone 18-1662 is called the Scarlet Flame, but for us it is undoubtedly a rich and runny cherry tomato. “The flame blazes brightly and exudes confidence and determination,” said the nuanced description, and we can no longer agree: this is not for colorful flowers. Christopher Kane’s spike foam dress is our favorite at London Fashion Week, while Acne Studios and Chromat are great for combining colors with ice white shoes. Live tomato notes complement all skin tones and look great when duplicated with the right lipstick.
We used to broadcast texts about the excitement of yellow, and this season the sun’s protection penetrated the collection and brought much-needed optimism to our cupboards. Pantones 13-0822 means sunshine – “invites happiness, pleasant pleasures and a smiling presence” – but we prefer the connotation of the lemon sorbet sparkling tongue that we witnessed at the Jacquemus lavender dream event in Provence (lilac and lemon made extraordinary), FYI ) and in London with JW Anderson and Emilia Wickstead.
