Brian Atwood Suede PumpsClaudia Embroidered Suede Pumps – Brian Atwood; net-a-porter.com – $2,115.00

Forget blue suede shoes, It’d be a cardinal sin if someone stepped on these aqua pumps from Brian Atwood. They’re positively stunning and embroidered details on the back add a little added dimension that any fashion junkie can appreciate. It’s sort of delicate but bold, a mix of contraries I’m obsessed with.

Eye on Style: Color Blocking

Eye on Style: Color Blocking

It’s a trend that won’t die, and I’m surely not about to try to squash it. While much of the fashion world has been enthralled with the absence of color that is black, we’re more adept to enjoy the merits of the full spectrum of the color wheel, even if that means making outrageous color combinations that work even though we can’t understand why. Spring is going to play with our understanding of color blocking and we couldn’t be more happy. From Gucci’s use of bold solid colors that pair together for the ultimate indulgence in rich color to the likes of Poupee Couture’s interpretation of color blocking, this spring and summer isn’t just about color, it’s about embracing it in a different way.

From Top Left to Bottom Right:

[1] Color Blocking According to Gucci – intense hues in the form of separates that pair together so strikingly well, no neutrals are necessary to offset their intensity. Gucci’s color by blocks is a shawl collar jacket in ‘Beetrot’; $2,150.00, a royal purple strapless top; $795.00, an emerald green low rise pants; $875.00, wide adjustable tassel belt; $990.00, all available for pre-order Saks Fifth Avenue.

[2] Amrita Singh infuses color blocking into simple and delicate thread bangles, they’re available on Couture Candy right now for 15% off of the original price $100.00.

[3] Fendi’s tri color belt (retail: $460.00) mixes teal and olive, and it’s the perfect piece to add to any ensemble channeling Christina Hendricks.

[4] Brian Atwood color blocked a platform slingback, with violet, kelly green, and turquoise suede taking color blocking to a new level of chic retailing for $460.00.

[5] Poupée Couture puts a little metallic gold edge on the orange in this color blocked fuchsia and orange crystal shoulder bag, it’s available at Boticca.com for $360.00.
