It’s really no surprise that the colour red is gaining ground for AW17 and beyond. A hue with a strong association to passion, power, and femininity. It has been said that fashion trends are influenced by politics and current affairs, red without a doubt is a reflection of what is happening across the world right now.

So what does red look like in 2017? Deep reds and wine tones such as oxblood and burgundy are popular in apparel and accessories, but bright, bold power reds are also making strong statements in corporate and outwear, think fire-engine and tomato red.

On the AW17 runways there was a fiery and almost fluorescent red at Victoria Beckham, however over at Jil Sander it was all about suiting in scarlet. 

No matter the vehicle, the power of red is here to stay!
