New Favourite Colour: Yves Klein Blue

You know a colour has seeped into

22 Nov 2011

You know a colour has seeped into your subconscious when the last 3 items you’ve bought are all saturated in the self-same hue. The Crombie coat I’m wearing below, a 60s-style mini which makes me look like a PanAm extra and a killer pair of platform peep-toes from Steve Madden in New York; all in vibrant, bold Yves Klein blue. According to smarty-pants trend forecasting website, Editd, I am very much a product of the mind-addling properties of the catwalk. To wit: the shade in question, also known as cobalt or electric, appeared in no less than 36 Spring/ Summer collections across the 4 fashion week cities. I was clearly brainwashed taking notes. I love how it looks with neon pink or black and white graphic prints.

    Oh la la. I love your exact numbers… it makes it feel quite academic! That coat looks gorgeous on you – totally agree, it looks amazing with the bold black/white stripes. xx

    This has always been one of my favourite colours and the time is nigh to stock up whilst it’s everywhere! What’s the difference between cobalt blue and Yves Klein blue?
