BRIGHT Now


Gucci hit the runway for Fall '11 with bright colors featured in nearly every ensemble that went down the catwalk. From richly colored furs to bold trousers the 70's glam influence was a visible theme throughout the collection. You'll see lots of brightly colored apparel and accessories in stores this fall which will create some much needed variety in the usual monochromatic fall palette of blacks, greys and neutrals.


Also jumping head first into a bright color palette for fall was designer Alberta Ferretti. Mixing electric blue with purple, fuschia and red, the collection featured shorter proportions and lots of luxurious thigh high velvet boots. (Add those to my wish list ASAP!)
