This colour-blocking combo is top of fashion’s Premier League
You say West Ham; I say Milan streetstyle. You say Aston Villa; I say fashion influencer. You say Burnley… yup, you get the picture. It’s the one painted in claret and blue.
Actually, it’s burgundy and blue, if you don’t mind. Or eggplant and denim, if we’re going full New York fashion week. Whatever you call it, the point is that, of all the modish combinations that have had their moment in the sun since colour blocking first became A Thing, burgundy and blue is the one that has stuck. Every fashion season, a new duo gets thrown up – I am pretty sure I wrote a column in praise of pink with orange at one point. Sorry about that, dudes. Most of them stay on the fashion page, without making the transition to real life. Burgundy with blue, however, gets seen and photographed at fashion week, every season without fail, because it works.
