Spring collections are nearly always about light or bright colours (except maybe in the case of Gareth Pugh) and this often involves pastel shades. For Spring 2009 however, many designers designed to bring pastels up a notch or two by introducing neon pastels. Appearing on the catwalks at Richard Nicoll, Christopher Kane and Eley Kishimoto the colour palette was certainly eye-catching.
At Eley Kishimoto (above right) the color was pattered which is easier to wear than the harsh block colour at Richard Nicoll. Christopher Kane obviously did his own twist on the trend with mixed fabrics and funky cut out shapes with plenty of volume.
