On & Around the Street


Fendi, Valentino, Max Mara, Versace, Prada

From flaming crimson to deepest burgundy, the new season’s palette is simmering with the heat of countless shades of red.

Go head-to-toe, as seen at Max Mara and Fendi, to make the boldest statement. Our tip: choose your same-shade separates from one retailer to make sure the tones match as closely as possible. Add a scarlet coat in the same or a slightly deeper hue to complete the effect.

Little red dresses ooze sex appeal, while a below-knee coat or sleek biker jacket are the hottest ways to keep off autumnal chills.

Prefer a subtler look? Add a pop of vermilion via a feisty pair of suede shoes, or simply throw on a red sweater with a pencil skirt or jeans – easy.
