Life in technicolour

Text: Andrea Sim

Why settle for one colour when you can have seven? Rejuvenate your wardrobe with one of resort 2016's biggest trends

Don't get us wrong — we're impartial to a good monochrome outfit where it's all down to the details. But when resort offers up not three, not four, but seven or more colours at one go, it's hard to refuse multi-coloured cheer for trusty grey or black. 

Try saying no to the rainbow dusted in glitter on the Anya Hindmarch clutch, or stripes layered to sequinned perfection on Chanel's Classic Flap bag. Even the Gucci girl dips her toes into rainbow waters this season in metallic ruffles and pleats. And, wasn't it Tim Myers that coined the phrase with a catchy tune: I see life in technicolour, I see love round every corner. That, is the mantra of resort 2016.
