For a while now, I've been trying to put together a post explaining to you why I feel that my friend Kit Lee, photographer and stylist (The Style Slicker) has one of the most advanced 'colour sense' of anyone I know. It's not just colour: it's texture, balance, knowing and breaking the rules.. that's what makes her such a good stylist. (note to all you girls out there who want to be the next Rachel Zoe: there's more to it than being able to shop).
Rather than try to compile a Kit's Greatest Hits, I'm taking it in little chunks. Yesterday, for example. We were talking about how we've only me last February, (sitting in the freezing rain, @ LFW, street shooting), and said with her huge Cheshire cat grin 'Yes, I was wearing the same scarf and hat' and she went on to tell us exactly who and what and why she was texting with at the time. Razor sharp memory: essential.
I have these little rules: Not wild about red on its own, or with black and grey, but add some purple and plum, and I'm in. Same with orange. Orange and black, I wouldn't wear it if you put a gun to my head. But add the hottest pink to that combo, and some camel suede, and Ola! Them's bullfighting colours and I'm in love.
Speaking of: ElleGate is so not over. Au contraire, Pierre. Just not ready to talk about it yet.
