This week’s famous Serpentine Gallery party was a total blackout, with supers Kate, Naomi and Eva all selecting the sombre hue. A far cry from the pretty printed tea-dresses usually associated with a summer party, the catwalk queens instead opted for the flattering seduction of black.
Perhaps the recent spate of bad weather inspired their choices. Or maybe they were channelling a darker, more autumnal mood. Whilst I can’t deny they look divine perhaps a shot of bold colour would have worked better in June – a crisp cobalt or a zesty tangerine. After all, winter is a whole season away. Well, a month at least.
