The Big Blue
There is no doubt that all the key designers are going through a big blue phase at the moment. Mulberry was advocating Royal Blue on the catwalk; Chanel’s classic navy was all aboard the runways; GQ’s spring fashion report was flooded with blues and Yves Klein Blue was the colour of the year at Milan Furniture Fair. Furniture designer Ross Lovegrove has even worked with Renault to create an International Klein Blue concept car. Despite being cool in its effects, blue is definitely red hot and looks set to continue in vogue for the foreseeable future.
Kinnarps Colour Studio is awash with the blue hue, from the subtle aquatic tones of ‘Remix 3961’ to a big, bold Cobalt, in the form of ‘Delta 6050’, which wouldn’t be amiss in an Yves St Laurent garden.
