I think Celine Pre-fall is kinda spot-on. For whatever reason I think the Russian post-soviet colors are hitting mainstream, I think it’s the right time for it now. White shoes and burgundy stockings, beige and black and olive green too. All the colors that shouldn’t go are going now. I’ve been thinking of this palette ever since I first went to Moscow a few years ago. At first I found it so off putting but just like the lingering taste of caviar I couldn’t just dismiss it either and I’ve been trying to figure out ways to re-interpret it to suit me. I think Celine did a nice job of it. Below a couple of the color schemes I first encountered in Russia.
