Color Psychology is fascinating! Today we look at shades of blue; designed by Derek Lam. Derek’s vision is elegantly sophisticated, offering a timeless touch in sensuality and luxury. He embraces spring with blue energy conveying a feeling of euphoria. Artists use the color blue to show perspective. This is a good way to understand its potency - it allows us to look beyond and increase our perspective outward. It contains a cool vibration that is helpful to communication. “Through years of color word-association studies, we also find that Turquoise represents an escape to many – taking them to a tropical paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy” - Leatrice Eiseman (Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute).
Lam’s style is captivating; you have to wonder where his inspiration came from? Asbury Park, NJ and Rehoboth Beach in Delaware paint a retro theme with a line of nostalgic contours… genius! With 20 years of fashion under his belt, Lam continues a passion toward feminine detail and wearable style. Stumbling upon the Pantone Color Institute, it definitely puts the trend in future fashion. There is so much beauty surrounding us – found in nature’s simplest landscapes.
“It is not the form that dictates the color, but the color that brings out the form.” ~ Hans Hoffman
