It seems that colour is back. For Spring 2009 we must ditch that gothic look we've been cultivating and replace it with hues which may make us look somewhat like an ice cream sundae. Happy colours to help us through the credit crunch, perhaps.
The stand-out shade making itself known from show to show is orange. Don't recoil in horror, I'm sure orange can be wearable...somehow.
Christopher Kane's latest collection is still allowing us some of the doom and gloom with a smattering of black pieces, but wearing a monkey on my chest (go look at the collection and you'll see what I mean) seems just as happy and fun as wearing bright bright colours, so I figure that depression really is out.
