In the new heading "Combo" we will tell you how to combine things of different styles, models, textures and colors. She can easily get into fishnet tights, unusual shoes, a vinyl miniskirt or a huge fluffy sweater - in the most unexpected combinations. Our illustrations are not a call to purchase, but tips - after all, something similar can certainly be found in the closet. In the first issue, there is an extremely fashionable friendship between things of red and black colors.
Until recently, the combination of red and black was associated with aggression, even vulgarity, or subcultures. But it is gothic and the same type of hoodie with the name of metal bands and motorcycle equipment that inspire a whole galaxy of young designers today. One of those who set the tone is Demna Gvasalia. Vivid color combinations can be seen at almost every Vetements show. In the spring-summer collection next year, the brand proposes to wear a red light dress with monstrous leather boots, more reminiscent of trousers. It is unlikely that this option is applicable for the life of most of us - nevertheless, it suggests how to combine red with black: it is better for things in one image to be different in texture.
So, the most interesting thing is to combine different materials: vinyl - with wool, matte leather - with velvet, sequins - with silk. Off-White supports this idea. If the sports theme doesn't appeal to you, pay attention to how it looks at Nina Ricci. The brand proves that even with such a combination - a red translucent blouse and a black shiny skirt - the image can look gentle and in the spirit of the times. It remains to add that if you dilute this color scheme with neutral white, gray or beige, then it will easily lose all connotations and will suit literally everyone and everything. Although it would seem!
