Red or Dead


Red and black is a notoriously harsh color combination, and the intensity of the two colors was used to full effect in Katie Gallagher's Spring 2012 collection Red Red Blood.  This season Katie was inspired by blood--not the splashes of blood from horror movies or nightmares, but instead the sanguine vitality of coursing blood moving through the human body.  Rather than thinking of blood in a macabre way, Katie sees it as our lifeforce, which is perhaps why red has always been such an appealing color to wear.  With her clothes, Katie takes that vivid, living color, which usually remains hidden underneath or skin, and brings it to the surface.

Beautiful! I love the first shot with that red dress! I was always afraid of red, but now I want to explore this fear.

I just bought a pair of red socks!

Did you notice the bountiful combination of red and black that night at Milk?
