street fashion -sf – Neon color blocking

Posted: October 30, 2008 in Uncategorized

She is combining three wild neons and white. I think it work so well because none of the neons are next to another. I have used this photo as a source for which neons to combine and how to combine them.
As of october 08, Old Navy has great bright colors in long-sleeved tees and hoodies. They are in the women’s section, but they are unisex. H&M also has an unusual color palette in their women’s t-shirts. American Apparel colors seem strangely subdued by comparison.

  1. American Apparel is (unfortunately) ahead of the curve. They were doing the 80s thing until about a year ago and now are being more influenced by the 50s styles that were peaking in Europe 2 years ago. 80s has now made it squarely into the mainstream, which is why on some days in downtown SF you can be forgiven for forgetting what decade it is.

    Thanks, for the Euro insight. I have been noticing 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and millenial styles all mixed up. Downtown fashion seems to follow corporate trends closely though.
