In a season where autumnal tones typically dominate the runway, an unexpected hue has set the fashion world ablaze. ‘Fiery red’ has emerged as the reigning color, championed by iconic brands such as Valentino, Hermès, and Balmain. Royals like Kate Middleton and top models including Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski have embraced this vibrant shade, making bold statements that cannot be ignored in the high spheres of fashion.
From Milan to New York and Paris, the dramatic shades of red are stealing the spotlight, transcending global borders to grace the troves of Indian couture. Top designers weigh in on the unexpected rise of red, offering insights into how to seamlessly incorporate this bold hue into your fall wardrobe. A red alert has taken over, with celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Alia Bhatt, Navya Naveli Nanda, Camila Mendes, Keke Palmer, Jenifer Lopez, Rita Ora, and Gemma Chan showcasing their love for this season’s must-have colour. These A-listers demonstrate the versatility of fiery red, proving it can be worn in various styles and silhouette.
This season, “Red is the new hot pink”, and majority of red looks come in shades with orange undertones, maroon and crimson. Couturiers like Tory Burch and Alejandra Alonso Rojas are incorporating fiery red into their designs. Investing in statement pieces like coats, blazers, or sweaters can instantly elevate your entire outfit. Kapoor advises going all in with a monochromatic fiery red ensemble for an eye-catching look.
Fiery red is a winning shade that exudes passion, intensity, and positive energy. Styling tips include keeping accessories and complementary colors simple to let the red piece be the focal point. Jennifer Lopez’s striking red asymmetrical dress and Gemma Chan’s daring cut-out gown at Cannes serve as excellent examples of how to showcase the strength and style of fiery red.
As autumn unfolds, fiery red extends its influence to jewelry. Note the rise of rich jewel tones of garnet in couture-inspired jewellery on celebrities showcasing the trend on the red carpet. Tone-on-tone styling is recommended, but for an extra layer of glamour, black and gold jewels can accentuate a red outfit, adding a sparkling touch to the fiery trend.
