They’re blue, yellow, red, pink and green
…and they’re coming to put the win back into winter.
Stand back black, go away grey – there’s enough of you in the sky to wear you on our bodies too. We don’t need any more of your darkness, we need colour and light to fill the gaping gap in the spectrum at this time of year.
To fill this said gap, my photographer friend Xanthe Berkeley came to me with a plan; to make up for all the lost colour by overloading and filling the frame will ALL of the hue in a dedicated photoshoot. It would be a bit of fun, a photography passion project we could do at the weekend that wasn’t for anything other than just to bring joy to ourselves and the good people of Instagram.
A long-time pioneer of colour (Xanthe made a conscious decision to remove anything black from her wardrobe years ago and has lived only in colour ever since) and advocate for the importance of experimenting, it makes total sense that @Xantheb would co-own an annual hashtag project called #ColorColourLovers. Created with her US doppleganger Andrea of @HulaSeventy, they set themselves the challenge of posting only specific colours each week in February in a bid to brighten it up.
This year marks the 5th anniversary (how dedicated is that?!) and so Xanthe decided to celebrate with this silly shoot.
We bring you five ways to brighten up the dull days – these colourful winter outfits!
