Bello Magazine: Lady in Red



For Spring Summer 2016, it’s all about red blossoms and red wine. Whether it be Bourganvillea, Bordeaux or Burgundy. The colour of love, passion and power gets us in the mood this spring/summer 2016.

Red is a big theme, used as the backdrop of beautiful prints, as seen on the catwalks of Gucci, Dolce&Gabanna, Boglioli and Max Mara.

D&G’s rose print Bellucci pumps, or red Sicily bag, are totally great worn with jeans and a white T, for May cocktails. And, their rose print brocade trousers, a versatile mix and match item, which will see you through til fall.

Boglioli teamed red men’s suits or coral trousers with salmon pink shirts. Whilst elsewhere blouses were made bold with majestic blooms as unisex items that transcend gender norms. It is all about the emotions that red brings.

Red brings tradition and modernity together and will be in the wardrobe, one way or another. Red T’s brighten up denim and red tailoring brings a twist of ruby dazzle into the day. Worn alone as monochrome, matched with black or white, or merged with an electric blue or bright green, it’s a double dose of bright this season.

The beauty of red is that it can be as feminine or lady danger as you want it to be.

Red was worn by Miss Wintour herself at New York Fashion Week 2016, who was seen in a beautiful red woolen Maison Margiela dress. Make up wise, models wore red lips on every runway show. Not so much coral, but more blood red orange, magenta, and rusty red. Ruby Woo means business.

Red mood board

Fiesta, Campari, red brings excitement and energy, a blushing cheek or a budding flower, are bang on trend. Mixed with the calming, softer nature of this season’s palette, colours such as Rose Quartz and Peach are in for the Spring.
