A SPLASH OF COLOR from NY fall 09 fashionweek

A SPLASH OF COLOR from NY fall 09 fashionweek

designers went shockingly bright in this economyBy: brigitte segura

with a START of another season of the usual blacks, greys, and (more) dark blues…there was an added BLAST of shocking colors onthe FALL 09 NEW YORK RUNWAY this time…

..the bright SUIT is back in a big way… that electric blue or rouge jacket you’ve been saving since the 80’s?… it’s so haute new on the DONNA KARAN runway…a return to an (old) freshenednew in familiar silhouettes and bright hues.Ofcourse, MARC JACOBS led the flaunting parade of (almost neon) yellows, blues, pinks and reds, paired with darks…FUSCHIA was showing up everywhere, even on TOMMY HILFIGER men… andas for the dressy bunch…CAROLINA HERRERA had top-to-toe amethyst in satin and velvet; DKNY was rich in reds; BADGLEY MISCHKA and TRACY REESE showed jeweled tones of citrine, greens and blues…

Get used to color again and indulge in a colored accessory,like green or plum tights, a purple hat, a fuschia scarf, orange chunky jewelry, or a (pepto) pink handbag…wear it with your favorite (dark) and get an instant happy [without a big investment]… SPANX already has a range of tights available on-line in colors including raspberry, cobalt, violet, and emerald for (twenty-something) bucks…

THERE issomething so marvelous about having the courage to wear brights… and if everyone else is, it just doesn’t look as jolting to the eye.Craving an instant lift?Wear a tone of pink (we’re not talking baby pink)… bubble pink, coral-pink, pink-violet! By the FALL you’ll be ready to take the plunge wearing printed leggings from MARA HOFFMAN or psychedelic tights in pink + green from MARC…

The hint of BRIGHT is RIGHT and paired with black, it’s TREND made easy (for anyone)… so go ahead, CAST your outlook in rainbow color
