Color-Block is not new at all, right? But this season far from neon or color blocking designers break the dark and sober color palette travelling back to 70s. The new Bold is: Clashing colors and experimentation.
Everything started at Paris Fashion Week where designers like Chanel or Junya Watanabe give us several retro-inspired creations matched with shoes creating a head-to-toe vision.

After we had London Fashion Week where we found glitter-poppy skirts, flares, platforms and bold prints at House of Holland(floral prints also, stunning!) or Matthew Williamson.
Colors such an electric blue, hot pink, tangerine or green will be a must.
We already talkes about vintage rock and hippie vibes before remember?

And if that’s #toobold for you, try with head-to-toe bold color outfit like Balmain or Emanuel Ungaro bring as proposal.
One great tip if you want to try Color-Blocking is think on to try bright on brights, print on prints, or solid on solids. And match bright with neutral like Michael Kors did at #NYFW that could look so sophisticated!

And once talking about bold prints we can’t miss Pop Art inspiration for this SS15. Pop Art sensibility gave the clothing a graphic, modern confidence. Like Issa showcased at #LFW or Versace at Milan Fashion Week. (Glittery hues were the best!, revival from Richard Avedon’s iconic AW94 campaign)
