From Andy Warhol’s pop-art in the sixties to Dan Flavin’s sculptural art installations, make no mistake — neon-inspired design has and will always be a popular trend in pop culture. And there’s a reason why. There’s just something arresting and intriguing about these bold and bright colours. Their distinctive glow capture our hearts and minds and bring cheer to a dreary day.
With neon increasingly seen on the runways this Fall/Winter, it’s clear the fashion houses feel the same way too. Just look at the seersucker puffed shoulder dress and “seaweed” shoe glazed with glaring greens on the runways of Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, or Brandon Maxwell’s electric yellow jumpsuit. Kenzo also went with bright yellow with its combination of turtleneck sweater and midi skirt, while designers such as Jason Wu, Ulla Johnson and Pier Paolo Piccioli at Valentino paid homage to shocking pink.
Here, we teach you how to carry off the trend with these 16 pieces, so you can be fashionably on point or dress up for #neonlights2018.
