Colour causes a lot of contention when it comes to putting together or pulling off looks. During my work and particularly when I'm teaching fashion and styling I get asked about what colours can people wear and what colours are wrong. I'm afraid I disappoint as I invariable say anything goes. Having broken down the walls of colour rules (this sentence made me think of one of my favourite Northern Soul song by the Bandwagon Breaking Down the Walls of Heartache!) I have to build back up their confidence and introduce the world of colour.
The world of colour has no rules. If you look all around you at nature, light, buildings, art and watch films these are some example how you can imagine colour interacting or clashing.
A current trend explosion is my all time favourite red and pink. My hallway is a homage to this combination. I have the Andy Warhol Sunflower series in his pink and red version hanging up and my flowers are usually a pink and red combo.
Never say never, always have fun with clothes and combine whatever you want and this made me think of The Psychadelic Furs and Love my Way with those classic lines 'love my way, it's a new road, I follow where my mind goes'. Embrace the pink and red.
