In  Style

blueFrom inky depths to clear blue skies these shades can ebb and flow like the sea.

I often think of blues as the colour of summer, but that’s for the cobalt, sky and azure shades. The ones that go so well in bright conditions, shows skin in it’s best summer light and make you dream of swimming in a perfect sea.

But the darker more seductive shades can transform a winters outfit into a richness that combines colour and depth. A deft addition of indigo adds a luxury to even the most mundane of outfits.

High on my life list is to see real indigo dying in Japan. To see a master who has dedicated their life to the inky hues, that I feel will add a new dimension to the way I see blues.
