On the Street....London Color Story, London




I've rarely seen such a pervasive and specific color story as this blue and gold combination that's happening in London right now.

What is that exact shade of blue called?

There must be something in the air because I bought a cardigan in Seoul in that exact shade.

Petrol, peacock blue, teal?

Teal? At least it is not a sea of grey to match the sky during LFW!

The first and third photos looks like peacock or teal blue. (I love the gorgeous mustard yellow mixed in for the first photo!)

The second and last photo seems more of a darker shade of cobalt blue (instead of the punchy, bright shade that Phillip Lim put out on his line NYC Fashion Week last week).

It looks like a dark teal to me. I managed to wear the latter of the two colour combinations to LFW on the first day (okay, more tan than gold), and a mixture of blue and mustard yesterday. All these colour combinations remind me of a designer called Charlotte Taylor, who created a lot of clothes in these palettes.
I love the combination of the hat and coat in the fast shot - when it doubt, always go for something classic.

This combination of blue and yellow (whether you want to call it teal blue and mustard gold or whatever) reminds me very much of the house colours for Ravenclaw in the Harry Potter series. Described as 'blue and bronze' in the book, they changed them to blue and silver/grey in the movie (missing out on the opportunity for this beautiful colour combo). Perfect for every wannabe Ravenclaw intellectual out there! (Ravenclaw being the house which values intelligence, creativity, learning and wit.) The first pic in particular does conjure up images of 1920s Bloomsbury Group intellectuals ...

teal! a darker teal

Absolutely my favorite color combination, ever.

So striking and beautiful!! I'm loving the discussion on the exact name of the colors... especially loving the comment from Anonymous re the Harry Potter series. :)

I haven't seen anyone suggest that maybe this colour combination is inspired by the teal and orange craze in Hollywood movies over the last few years.

Sadly this trend has not come to Boston. I love it! This color combination is absolutely great! Your photos certainly show this trend perfectly. I love that shade of blue ad sadly I don't know the name of that shade of blue. I love the picture of the woman taking her photo.
Check out my trendy blog!
