Colour Trend: Neons
Posted on February 24 2023
Neon colours are taking the scene by storm this season, bringing a pulsating energy to runways and showrooms alike. And with the spring and summer months etching ever closer by the day, the re-emergence of this exciting colour trend couldn’t be better timed…
We’ve sifted through our SS23 collection and identified 6 of the most unmissable neon-infused showpieces to revitalise your mid-season wardrobe.
Givenchy Fluorescent Yellow TK-360 Plus Trainers
The energetic, fluorescent yellow colourway of our featured TK-360 Plus Trainer from Givenchy complements its sleek and aerodynamic design, really reinforcing the overtly futuristic vibe the model expresses. You get the feeling that Matthew M. Williams is really attempting to tap into his cyberpunk-themed vision of tomorrow, juxtaposing the darker, more gothic aesthetic that Givenchy is more widely known for at present. Either way, it’s an undeniably impressive sneaker that deserves to be matched with an equally vibrant outfit ensemble.
Palm Angels Black Miami Print Workwear Shirt
From the streets of LA to the beaches of Miami, Francesco Ragazzi goes coast to coast with Palm Angels’ Miami Print Workwear Shirt (doing his best Miami Vice impression along the way!). It’s a style that really evokes the spirit of 80s Miami, with its palm tree-laden sidewalks and neon-soaked boulevards, paying homage to a truly special period in the history of American fashion. We’ve doubled down with our featured look, styling it with our Miami Classic Print T-Shirt from the same story.
Palm Angels Orange Logo Pool Sliders
You may already be familiar with the OG Palm Angels Logo Pool Sliders, but this vivacious orange iteration proves that Francesco Ragazzi is never one to rest on his laurels. Palm Angels’ latest collection is a treasure trove of explosive colour with neon blues, yellows and pinks punctuated throughout. Our featured Orange Logo Pool Sliders are certain to bring pure energy and vibes to the pool party this vacation season and are amongst the easiest styles to recommend for your summer wardrobe rotation. Also, look out for the equally as dynamic Light Blue Logo Pool Sliders from our latest showcase if that’s more your speed…
Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh Black Opposite Arrow Slim T-Shirt
Sometimes an injection of neon is all that’s needed to bring a piece to that next level, as suggested so earnestly by Off-White’s Opposite Arrow Slim T-Shirt. Particularly when set against the monochrome black and white backdrop, Ib Kamara’s neon-coloured messaging carries significantly more impact and draws the eye from afar. Considering that Off-White is all about sending a message and leaving a mark, we’d say it’s a design choice that absolutely hits the mark it’s aiming for. Complete the set with our Opposite Arrow Skate Sweat Shorts to match.
Valentino Pink PP VLTN Print T-Shirt
Valentino’s SS23 collection introduces the second wave of Pierpaolo Piccioli’s ‘Pink PP’ capsule and with it, this stunning Pink PP VLTN Print T-Shirt. Traditionally speaking, statement colours like hot pink are usually implemented only sparingly, (especially by heritage labels like Valentino), often as a means of enhancing an otherwise more serious style. But Pierpaolo throws out the rulebook with his Pink PP designs, opting to make the story about the colour itself, rather than using the colour merely as a tool to tell another’s story. The result is a collection that takes on a life of its own and brings an entirely new dimension to Valentino’s lookbook.
Christian Louboutin Fun Louis Junior Multicolour Panel Trainers
With sharp neon panelling that compares and contrasts perfectly with its clean white leather base trim, Christian Louboutin’s Fun Louis Junior Multicolour Panel Trainer is already shaping up to be one of the shoes of the summer. In all honesty, it’s the thing that Mr Louboutin simply does like no one else - imbuing his designs with a unique sense of personality, without ever compromising on the elegant and unmistakably premium expression that defines the label. The Fun Louis Junior silhouette has quickly emerged as a favourite among the people in recent seasons and we absolutely love this colourful redesign of an already impeccably put-together sneaker.
