"Sunday Runway, Coming Attractions . . . "


Greetings,

If you watched Man Men last week - then you'll have non-linear story telling fresh on your mind.  Or maybe you were a fan of Lost. Or Doctor Who.  Well.  Regardless of your television watching habits - things are happening a little out of order around here today.

You see, I'm working on (and clearly thought I would have completed by now) a jaunty little post about the great trend I saw with 'colour' at High Point Market this last week.  My little digital camera is practically full-to-bursting with brightly printed textiles . . . and rooms saturated with bright hues.

And to accompany that - I put together little missive celebrating an equivalent trend in men's fashion.

Well, I think we can all raise a glass (or your morning cup of coffee - depending on when you wonder across this posting) to the best laid plans.  So . . . I now present . . . but, coming before the thing the it was going to reference . . .

Fashion.  in  colour.

It was almost like a knew what I was going to find at Market. Because this is a fun image that I took in my hotel room as I was getting everything unpacked.  I often pack with a particular colour-story in mind . . . and this one was clearly going to be navy sweaters - but, with great, bright accessories.

Swinging for the fences - with a combo of bright and brighter . . . 

Or maybe something a tiny bit more subtle . . . .

Cheers,
Scot
