Fashion Trend: Yellow – Your Star is Rising
Chris Martin was right. “Look at the stars, look how they shine for you, and everything you do…they were all yellow…” Yes, Coldplay were years ahead of their time when they identified this season’s hottest colour. Because 2017 is going to be ablaze with yellow. Every shade from neon, through bright banana to soft sherbet graced the international catwalks.
The runways shone with shades of saffron and limoncello. Haider Ackermann paired stunning acid yellow with a simple black leather jacket, Pucci a sheer elegant dress, whilst Ferragamo was understated (if yellow ever can be) but elegant. Gucci showed us you can be as frothy as you like with frills that shout in a citrus shade. For a more polished look go for Ralph Lauren’s simple shift and for statement looks Vivienne Westwood’s dramatic dress or Rick Owens sculptural dresses. Others such as Chanel, Chloe, Bottega Veneta, Simone Rocha, Tibi, Cedric Charlier and Phillip Lim kept the shades of yellow coming with sheer fashion enthusiasm.
For those not looking to illuminate themselves from head to foot, then try trousers (Maxmara), citrus accents (Loewe) and pretty yellow prints (Zac Posen) or highlight an outfit with yellow accessories. Valentino showed a teeny cute chained bag in yellow. Chaumet a pretty yellow strapped watch, There are towering yellow shoes from Louboutin to Gianvitto Rossi and my personal favourite – a yellow diamond-encrusted ring to die for from Fabergé!
Perhaps with all the uncertainty in the world right now we’re all looking for something to shine brightly. Certainly, we could all use a bit of stardust right now.
