The Colour of Magic

houdini-seance-header

“ The Colour of Magic” is this years Durban July 2017 theme. Race day goers and punters are in for a year that will no doubt mystify , conjure and delight.

Jump into the fantasy world of illusion and recreate some of last century’s most prolific magicians, illusionists and entertainers looks. Think velour in jewel tones and sequin surfaces that capture the mystical energy the day evokes.

From Wizardry to sorcery, delight in top hats and tails , capes and Victorian era inspired silhouettes.

 

Stripe Job

What is it about a stripe that makes me ever so anxious ? There is no denying how popular , varied and classical this trend is, but then why do I feel like a stripe is one of this season’s most boldest fashion statements I ask you ?

Perhaps stripes are that family member that doesn’t give a dam? Maybe it’s the challenge it presents in choosing the right version of it to flatter one’s torso? Or maybe , just maybe , it’s the fear of the ability to pull off a trend that is so longstanding few could possibly do it’s predecessors justice?

Getting this trend right most likely then rests on utilizing stripes in the most traditional of ways . If you are looking at investment pieces a magnificent stripe trouser or cashmere jersey is probably the best bet in winning the fashion stakes .

Both can transition into wardrobes effortlessly and are more than likely to withstand seasonal favor.
