This year's fall couture was full of red.
Especially Armani Privé's theme was
"Red, While and Black from a lacquer box".
Japan has a culture of traditional lacquer boxes called "Shikki".
I remember learning how to make one of those boxes by my own hand,
and it was a hard work.
Japanese lacquer ware.
This is my favorite look from Armani Privé.
I definitely want to try something like this look this coming fall.
Other looks in red from....
Jean Paul Gaultier
Passionate red to deep dark red.
I'm already looking forward to finding the best red for myself this year.
