Spring Summer 2020 is bringing a lot of vibrant shades with this new trend. With lively colours and complementary shades, it’s the new colour way to block!
With bright blocks of colour, the ramps were totally lit with the 70s colour-blocking trend. This trend is known to have originated from the artwork of Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian. Creating geometric structures with contrasting shades, it was a colourful affair. This style was incorporated by Yves Saint Laurent, that included both complementary shades and colour-blocking. And by the time 1960s struck, colour-blocking became a way of expression. With bright and bold colour combinations, it was the new style wave that took over.
Block-ing Hues to Drool Over
Starting off the colour fest was Alice + Olivia, with their range of bold contrasting shades like no other. From pastel hues combined with radiant skirts to dresses with bows, it was a colour parade unlike any other. Balmain, on the other hand, took a subtler route with rich pleated looks paired with black. From pantsuits with complementary handbags to knitted skirts and capes, there was a whole lotta vibrant on the ramps.
Issey Miyake’s show was a dance feat with pleated springy dresses in rich colour tones. And hats, fun hats! If Issey Miyake was about the dance, Moschino was all about the art. In abstract structures that reminded us of the Art movement, it was like a painting coming to life. Rochas added a leather touch to this colour play while Roksanda was all about flowy fabrics and gowns in complementary shades.
From Prabal Gurung’s drape play and a patchwork of colours to Masha Ma’s complementary colour schemes, this season was all about playful shades and confident looks. Designers like Altuzarra, Akris, Alberta Ferretti, Loewe and Versace too were all set to take part in this play of hues this season.
After all the ramps were set with the colour play, it was time for the celebrities to take over! Heading first was our very own Queen B, who loves the shades as much as we do. Janelle Monae soon followed with her Balmain red carpet look. On the home ground, Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor Taapsee Pannu and Suzanne were all set to follow this fashion trend.
