THE NEW PASTEL

STYLED BY WENDY MCNETT

Raw Pastels – Unsaturated Fashion

This spring’s chalky, unsaturated hues are washed over leather, cut into graphic shapes and punctuated by metallic shine. Pastels are no longer just for girly girls… these clothes are street worthy. Avant garde designer Linie created collections out of the pale shades that were graphic and structured. Georgine and Rosario played with pastel candy colored leather. And Brandon Sun masterfully blasted pink through a fur skirt (worn as a neckpiece in our story.) In the right hands these pieces read as fresh and somewhat ironic versions of their classic predecessors, to be worn only by those who can pull off the pale and quirky vibe.
