Okay, friends, I am done with this “capsule” which started as Neon Spring 2020, morphed into Neon Spring/Summer 2020 and ended up as just Neon Capsule 2020. My sewing speed and time is always over estimated.
I love this neon capsule!
At the time it seemed so refreshing after 2019 winter doldrums; little did we know what 2020 had in store. It’s this magazine page that started my neon sprint — and I wanted to include all colors shown in it. In real life, the capsule might need some toning down. Therefore, I made sure that there were “neutral” pieces in the closet to pair with this gaudy bunch; can a striped tee-shirt be considered a neutral? I think so. Not shown in the photo are black, white and khaki pants already in my closet, that may bring this capsule down to earth.
But then, why mess with the neon-ness?
On the other hand, why try to tone it down? I can wear all these together without the neutrals. It’s 2020, the year that will live in infamy for changing the human condition. So, here we are…
Just for fun
Want some colorful vintage inspiration from the 60s (and going into 1970)? Remember Pucci? If you want to see more of the same, go view the images I saved on my Pinterest board called Vintage Fashion and Sewing.
Okay, just one more colorful image from Gucci’s 2020 collections. I’m getting carried away here…..
The lesson in this post: adding intense color to one’s life is not so bad!
