Orange has recently become an important color, defining the style of men’s clothes for winter and summer season. Orange can be refreshing, futuristic, oriental, mysterious and mystic, but orange can be subtle, pastel, salmon-like, gentle, even elegant, as proposed by Gucci, Paul Smith, Dries van Noten, Viktor & Rolf or Loewe or geometric as Mugler suggested or a completely different color in palette with light-red, red, terra-cotta, ochre, mauve…
Orange, in its different nuances, is often combined with other colors, as the refreshing detail, like Dior Homme proposed for the coming summer 2013, with dark blue and the charming lacets, the old trick I have been practicing for over two decades!
The universe of orange, in its strongest, electrifying, melting edges is nicely combined with strong nuances of blue, like the strong opposing contrasting colors, as Iceberg saw it for the summer season 2013.
Strong contrasts of ultra shiny, electric, fluorescent colors and nuances served as the basis for the part of the collection proposed for the coming season by the house of Salvatore Ferragamo of Florence.
Mysterious side, mysticism, oriental touch or the trip between Marrakech and Mumbai is the way orange is perceived by Jean-Paul Gaultier and Kean Etro, who suggest the unrivaled matches of colors and patterns, discovering the mystic side of our personalities. A special treat for special people!
After the orange winter, a long orange summer is to come! A vous de choisir!
