Seven Colours

>> Why wear just one or two colours when you can shove seven into one outfit?  That's really the only thought process behind this image onslaught, triggered by bits and bobs of the following…

…Christopher Kane's S/S 12 resort collection which then led to the acquisition of a vintage Louis Feraud slip dress from the brilliant Thrifted and Modern, Caran D'ache colouring pencils and felt tip pens all in order in the box, 'Oblivion' by Grimes – her voice sounds like a rainbow, lava lamps, blow-up chairs and rainbow hemp clothing from Camden Market, accessories designer Fred Butler and set designer Andy MacGregor and their approaches to working, House of Holland' S/S 12 resort film by Mariano Vivanco, rainbow cakes, upping the saturation and contrast levels on Photoshop, 'Young Luv' by Christian AIDS, Alexander McQueen's S/S 03 rainbow shipwreck dress, bokah lights…

  30. Nice to be visiting your blog again, it has been months for me. I need this article to complete my assignment in college. Thanks.

  31. Wow I really love the colours! I utterly adore the dress, it’s so pretty and summery! Gorgeous. I think people need to wear more colours, just because it’s getting into winter doesn’t mean we should stop wearing colours and just wear black.

  32. You live a charmed life and I am glad to know you via the blog! I swear I could hear that fountain as I looked on!
