Stella McCartney - L'Heure Bleue
Stella McCartney's Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear show with the sea of vivid blue was simply stunning. It makes you want to tumble out onto the famously grey Parisien streets in search of that powerful, electric shade that would change your life. While the collection was not fully monochromatic as the artist Yves Klein's eleven identical blue canvases, I dare say the visual impact achieved from using that brilliant blue as a central component proved to be a huge success. Comparisons aside, I never thought an impeccably tailored blue suit would top my list of practical yet immensely beautiful things to be added to the wardrobe. It's statement making, fashion forward and sharp enough for a bright and early presentation. What more do you need?
