Catch Scarlet Fever…
Across the runways designers were feeling a little hot under the collar. Shades of scarlet, crimson, cardinal and vermilion brought an undeniable warmth of sexy, bright, sophistication to the upcoming Fall season.
The House of Valentino has long painted the town red, with the Couturier himself once saying: “Women usually prefer to wear black at events because it makes them feel safe, however, if there’s one woman wearing red, she will inevitably be the eye-catcher of the evening. It’s as though the room is suddenly illuminated — simply perfect for a grand entrance.”
The little red dress made for a dashing statement at Gucci, Lanvin, Jil Sander and Diane von Furstenberg, not to mention countless others. Meanwhile, at Michael Kors’ a luxe red fur added the finishing touch to a complete scarlet look. At Chanel a little red jacket also added a dash of colour to a monochromatic collection.
The colour of passion, red isn’t a look for the faint of heart. Sizzling sirens need only apply!
