color blocking at your own risk

Color blocking seems to be the lastest frenzy
yet undoubtedly one of the key trends of this
summer, not only by the beach though, is made
of perky bright color shades as seen in the 
designers collections all the way.

In our not-best-of-all-possible-worlds we
all apparently need to look ahead stepping
out in an energetic, bold spirit.
We can easily spot the winning color code
also in 2012 resort collections or even in
next year's menswear proposals.

The dominant colorway suggests a joyful
summer spirit playing with vivid hues and
materials, having fun mixing & matching
while creating memorable outfits, but
please be aware that you're going to
undertake the block-color-trend
adventure at your own risk!

Last but not least a color blocking authority,
noblesse oblige!
