The runways were a chromatic feast, with everything — from T-shirts to trousers and gloves and accessories — appearing in a range of prismatic hues. Virgil Abloh’s debut collection at Louis Vuitton is a perfect example of the current colour movement, as his show was a rainbow of colour or, as he explains in the show notes, “a kaleidoscopic palette, evolving from off-white to polychromatic”.
Shades of yellow seem to be the hero of the season. At Ermenegildo Zegna, Kenzo, Prada, and Dolce & Gabbana, canary yellow stole the show. Meanwhile, red was a strong contender and hot topic at Alexander McQueen and Louis Vuitton, with head-to-toe tailoring drenched in crimson. And a serious case for neon was made on the runways at Versace, Acne, Louis Vuitton, and Hugo by Hugo Boss.
