As the infamous saying goes, we’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker colour. But what if black is taking a bit of a backseat? A pop of colour seems to have infiltrated the fashion scene as of late and to be totally honest, we’re obsessed. I mean, we need something to brighten up the dull and drab weather, don’t we? A bold statement hue is capable of turning just about any outfit from boring to bold and faded to fabulous, so there’s nothing not to love. From super standout to perfectly printed, we’ve got a few showstoppers we can’t wait to share with you.
As if Converse aren’t cool enough already, the latest Andy Warhol collab oozes a new level of fun and creativity. These high-tops feature insane artwork by the legendary American pop artist Andy Warhol and it’s probably our favourite release yet. The pairing of an iconic artist and an iconic silhouette never made more sense. Why? Because Marilyn Monroe is bae. The mix of bold print and statement colours makes for a unique and quirky design which is set to bring any outfit alive. We love this hot new drop from Converse.
It’s an undeniable fact that adidas are killing it right now. Every new release is utterly on-trend and sends us all heart eye emoji, as if we’re thirteen again and crushing on the new kid in class. Superstars are now a firm shoedrobe classic and the popular primeknit style looks as if it’s here to stay. This modernised take on the iconic sneaker means the subtle scattered colour is at the heart of a casual and playful design. The micro multi-coloured flecks combined with the distinctive rubber shell toe keep it classic and authentic.
Is there anything more fun than a comfy shoe, a pop of mint and a lilo-esque bow shaped air nozzle? We vote no. In collaboration with iconic American designer Jeremy Scott, Melissa presents the deliciously dainty Space Love Bow ballet flats which are totally adorable. These pumps form a low silhouette with a slip on design and a rounded toe for both simplicity and style. Featuring embossed Jeremy Scott branding to the side and a bubblegum pink bow which wins the cute crown every day of the week, we can’t get enough of them.
Who said washing up was boring? These vibrant high-tops are a BRILLO-ant take on a Converse classic. Another one of Andy Warhol’s ingenious ideas revolves around primary colours and popular cleaning products – what’s not to love? In-keeping with the classic Converse colours, this design follows in the footsteps of using popular supermarket products. We’re talking Coca Cola and Campbell’s Soup – remember that? The iconic silhouette combined with the fun Brillo branding makes these a one of a kind Converse you don’t want to miss out on.
We couldn’t resist throwing in another Melissa + Jeremy Scott design, simply because of how fabulous they are. This time in a royal blue, the patent pumps are at the heart of casual vibes while the hot pink heart air nozzle injects the right amount of fun. The Space Love Heart ballet flats feature the embossed Jeremy Scott branding on the side and the quirky colour palette is both bold and beautiful. The perfect casual flat and ultimate pop of colour all rolled into one – what more could you want?
Pop of colour is an understatement where these Y-3 trainers are concerned, but we have to admit that we’re digging this bold and eccentric addition to the Y-3 family. The equally garish but gorgeous orange is oh so fierce, not to mention the bubble sole which adds an extra slice of innovation. Move over ‘all white everything’ because this crazy colour has stomped its way to stardom and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Serious comfort, serious style and serious Sunny-D vibes.
