My MANy Bags Lookbook #20
Fall For Red
Fall Winter 2010 season is soon upon us. If you think Fall Winter season belongs to dull hues of browns and blacks, be disappointed. This Fall Winter 2010 season, bright reds emerged triumphant as the brightest colour against the dark tones. Red is the key accent hue to dress and impress for Fall!
However, red on men (as the colour suggests) needs to be adopted with caution. Too much and you screamed tacky and wannabe. For me, my choice will be to invest in accessories in this colour rather than on clothing. The right accessories often enrich an outfit and will seldom go out of trend. Accessories will ensure more use and longevity for your 'investments':-)
For this edition of myMANybags lookbook, I have chosen a slouchy silhouette, with Damir Doma drop crotch and skinny leg knitted trousers balancing off draping t-shirt and soft unstructured jacket from Japanese label, Kolor. Neutral hues are worn, but fiery red accents comes in the form of Céline's outstanding but understated leather cabas with Hermès Collier De Chien in Red Garance and Silver Palladium Hardware for a touch of luxe. Lastly, stay warm from pre-fall temperatures with 'rebellious' Alexander Mcqueen's brown and white pashmina scarf. The look is a bit of an edge, some elements of luxe but aplenty of 'envy red eyes' to induce!
