The Pairing of Color

Within the incredible color spectrum, there are magnificent color hues of all different varieties–a plethora of dazzling shades. These engaging colors have a voice, emitting words of strength and sophistication, expressing confidence and liberation. Colors grasp your attention. They shine brightly for all to see. And when colors are paired together, something magical occurs…

In fashion, the relationships formed between individual color hues create something absolutely thrilling. Through these combinations, the colors voices and expressions unite with one another to create a feeling entirely of its own value and wonderful individuality. By embracing the unification of different shades and developing a fresh palette of distinction and allure, fashion sparkles in uniqueness. This couture season, two collections delved into the powerful pairing of color…

Armani Privé and Bouchra Jarrar.

Armani Privé

In this Fall 2014 couture collection, Armani explores the striking color combination of classic red and black. This pairing of memorable, powerful colorations gives off this undeniable feeling of strength. There is this distinct daringness housed within each breathtaking design. Red and black, when united, emanates confidence, an empowering stance of glorious beauty. The vivid red and black couture fashions in this collection, whether it be a stunning strapless dress of red encrustations and black netting, a lively red short-length suit, or a dark, leather top and lush outerwear coat, speak loudly and proudly.

Bouchra Jarrar

Bouchra Jarrar emphasizes the timeless, sleek combination of neutral color hues in her Fall 2014 couture collection. This color pairing of dark and light shades, of white, off-white, gray, and black, breathes this aura of sophistication, of exquisite simplicity. A feeling of modernity thrives within these elegant designs of colorations of everlasting appeal. The couture fashions express this edgy, sporty look of contemporary beauty. With sharply polished, lined pants of glisten and zippered vests, tops, and dresses with leather accents in the neutral palette, the couture fashions speak with marvelous style.

Boldness within Geometry and Color

A collection that is bold in its futuristic glory, in its strong geometric shapes and structures…

A collection that is bold in its inviting hues of warmth, in its inherent, lively confidence…

Collections that show the importance of standing strong and being unafraid.

Roksanda Ilincic

The fashions in this magnificent Resort 2015 collection are beautiful in their ability to bring to life the boldness and power within them, to allow these characteristics to shine freely for all to see. The strong designs are magnificent in their geometry–in their full circles, rectangles, and defined lines of straightness and slant. Each piece in the collection gives off this undeniable sense of modernity, this strong simplicity of brightly colored, sharp accents, this fresh, fluid look of the future. With aqua, yellow, dark blue, light pink, orange, green, black, and silver hues glistening on sharply structured, knee-length dresses, long overcoats, quilted sweatshirts and skirts, matching suits, and beautiful gowns of smoothness and texture, this collection is fearless.

Alberta Ferretti

This Resort 2015 collection delves into the powers that color truly holds, the daringness and vivacity it beautifully emits. The collection shows how color has this ability to step forward and make a statement of energy and passion. The fashions in this collection delve into the vivid colorations of light and deep purples, bright oranges and yellows, exquisite mixtures of pink and reds. With these hues strongly merging within the collection’s feathered-like designs of majestic printed wings, with these hues merging within the collection’s watercolor fields of intermingled glory, with these hues being their own entity within the collection’s solid colored dresses, jackets, coats, skirts, and pants, this collection is striking.
