Colour and fashion
Who invents the most evident colours appearing in the windows and assortments of clothing and accessories at the beginning of the season? who imagines them? Who introduces them?
Since ancient times, people have studied the shades of nature that surrounded them and have obtained colours from plants, leaves, fruits and bark, molluscs, insects, and minerals to dye their clothes and everyday objects. This is how over the centuries “taste for colour” has been developed, nurtured, and personalized.
