I don’t remember much of my school years, but oneÂ vivid memory I have fromÂ university was when I attended a guest lecture by Hans Bacher, and he talked about the impact of colour theory inÂ concept art. One image he showed was of a desert – a solid blue sky in stark contrast againstÂ a dark orangeÂ sandscape (is that a word?) It struck a chord in my happy place and may perhaps stay there for a good while.
This outfit took inspiration from that blue-orange colour combination, with a dash of red to the mix via myÂ martian socks and Inglot matte lip tint in the darkest shade I could find (#20). I like how I’m able toÂ vary the depthÂ of the colour simply by adding layers to it – shades of red for the price of one? I’m all for it.
I also borrowed Ottie’s pretty satchel for the day just to try the shinyÂ out. However,Â the strap was way too long and made carrying my laptop around awkwardly bumpy. It was such an uncomfortable experience, though I suspect that it’ll function much better once we punch some holes in the strap. Note to self: good idea to invest in a hole-puncher for leather products.
