Get your sunglasses! This spring neon is glowing bright. In colors like hot pink, green, orange and cobalt blue, there is no missing this season’s fashions. Even Proenza Schouler took advantage of this latest trend on the runway in New York. Incorporated into this particular fashion are details that add interest to the brightness. This includes an accented zipper and texturized pattern (punched holes). These simple additions make this otherwise simple silhouette bold and alluring.
With a trend this hot, why limit it to fashion? What we can learn from this is that simplicity can create interest through detail and boldness. Imagine a space with brightness and texture. The texture lures our sensual intrigue, causing the tactile connection to the space. Even the incorporation of an accenting zipper pulls on our attention. It is these seemingly small details and connection to the current trends, that make a big impact.
