“Color is a power which directly influences the soul.”
As a native New Yorker, I am no stranger to wearing black. Stereotypical New Yorkers are busy, brusque, and pretty much ignore each other. The color black certainly reflects this “Leave me alone.” mood. It’s a chic, but serious color to wear. There’s a reason why there isn’t a lot of black clothing for kids right? I thought of the impact of colors on seeing this editorial of Gisele Bündchen by Mario Testino for Vogue Paris June July 2017.
There is a prevalence of bright, bold colors in this editorial. I love the sense of vitality and youth conveyed by these hues. It reminds me that I also feel lighter and happier when I wear certain colors (reds and pinks mostly). A certain color or set of colors can certainly not only convey, but also change my mood. I used to be much more conservative with my color choices, but love to wear something a bit more colorful some days. May you have a few colorful days too!
