Bright like the sun, and that of lovely lemons, yellow is a color of great confidence, optimism and radiance. In fact, being surrounded by yellow releases more serotonin, the feel-good chemical, in the brain and is a color oft selected by intellectuals. This luminous color features in art, one loved by artists in the Impressionist period and abstract artists. Yellow ochre pigment was one of the first colors used in art; in the Lascaux cave in France, is a painting of a horse that is 17,000 years old. Style Edit Yellow can be a tricky color to pair.

This contrast has become the perfect breeding ground for a multi-faceted and diverse shopping culture to arise. Repression of Expression | Understanding the Roots of Modern Chinese Fashion To understand where China’ s fashion industry is headed, it is crucial to first understand more about China’s past ‘fashion’ standards.

Roland Mouret fashions are available at his new flagship store on 1006 Madison Avenue Summer 2016. The bold move from its first location at 952, marks a new beginning in New York as the  flagship upgrades to a townhouse, continuing the concept of the “maison” from the UK flagship at 8 Carlos Place. Inspired by le Courbusier Taking its cue from le Corbusier interiors, 1,937 square feet of retail space is arranged over the ground and mezzanine levels. The store is revolutionised in a new brutalism combined with an aura of 1970’s Parisian chic. Walls are rendered in raw concrete, and juxtaposing the hard industrial feel, finishes are  shown in bright orchid pinks and sand dune yellows. The poured and polished concrete floor is softened with curved carpet on the edges, with a brutalist sweeping steel staircase inviting you up to the mezzanine level.
