Who's Afraid of Red, White and Blue?

Jacquemus // Max Mara // Del Pozo//  Ralph Lauren 


After Marc Jacob's NYFW SS'16 star spangled finale, us spectators peasants couldn't help but mouth a grunt filled: 'MUUURICA! Am I right? Or was that just me?
In my defense, I probably got high on all the red, white and blue silhouettes strutting their way down the Ziegfeld theater.  Even so, one can't ignore that a vast majority of designers in LFW, PFW and even MFW showed shades of "patriotism" (whatever that means) that went beyond flags and straight into our future/present wardrobes. Take Lisa Perry's SS'16 collection for example; which wasn't afraid to converse with Robert Irwin's 1960 art piece titled "Who's afraid of red, yellow and blue?", and straightforwardly answer: "not me" while presenting full on primary colored, Mondrian-esque pieces.

As a black & white and blue (hi, denim!) enthusiast myself,  my answer to the question "Who's afraid of red, white and blue?" would definitely be along the lines of Les Misérables song Red and Black. Because each time I saw a dash of crimson in so many collections I couldn't help but sing: Chanel: Red, the blood of angry men! Jacquemus: Red, a world about to dawn! Lacoste: Red, the color of desire! etc... Which would directly translate into a welcoming embrace to anything red, scarlet or any synonym that exists of said word into my closet. In my defense, once again, there's never a wrong moment to suddenly belch out any song from Les Misérables. Also, Lacoste is dressing the french Olympic team this upcoming year, so quoting Victor Hugo sounds just about right. 


There you have it. 


What do you guys think of this trend?

  1. I think red, blue and white look always so versatile, it's possible to combine these colours in so many ways and somehow they definitely go together. I might not be a person who wears many colours, but these are really cool.
