Fall/Winter 2011 Colour Trend: Red-Orange

With Fashion Weeks in Europe drawing to a close, a few colour trends stood out amongst the various collections. The Crayola shade of red-orange for instance, was used by designers in New York, London, Milan and Paris.

Carlos Miele, Proenza Schouler and Reed Krakoff in New York

Carlos Miele’s gathered jumpsuit will be a popular garment this fall season. Many neutral-coloured oversized blazers were spotted on the runways, but this Proenza Schueler piece is funky and eye-catching. And although black sheer dresses were a plenty amongst the New York collections, these sheer red-orange sleeves by Reed Krakoff give a fresh and cheery look to the trend.

Matthew Williamson, Issa and Betty Jackson in London

Matthew Williamson shows that red-orange pants can be edgy, and Issa gave grace and sophistication to this bright dress from his collection. Though Feretti’s outfit could have looked like a prison jumpsuit, the model carries it with a whimsical attitude.  

Gabriele Colangelo, Blumarine and Alberta Feretti in Milan

Designers in Milan showed that red-orange outerwear will definitely be trendy this Fall, and Blumarine used cut-out lace in the same colour for a spin-off of the sheer lace dress.

Lanvin, Sonia Rykiel and Rue du Mail in Paris

Lanvin impressed viewers with dresses that incorporated movement and body, while Sonia Rykiel included red-orange stirrup leggings in her runway show, and Rue du Mail mixed Halloween colours in his red-orange piece.  

Stay tuned for more colour trends from Fashion Weeks!
