Recently I went out to the Mauer park here In Berlin and saw some 70s relics of toys. Me and my boyfriend both love to find such things all the time, we don't buy them most of the time . but I did get one thing, a Rubik's cube! It is such a strong icon of the 70s that it inspired me on how I should mix and match my colours according to the patterns on the object. Its so easy this way to see when two things match or more. Even my desk it has a navy blue plastic cup and a purple one next to it, they booth somehow compliment each other.
This is a nice way to see from other normal objects around you how you can match colors in a way that really stand out or compliment each other. Sounds silly, but even the wall in our room has this nice vibrant orange paint on it, with just white on the sides. It goes together so well. This is one of the main reasons why I love art and fashion and why I got used to it.

This vintage shop that we past by called " memories", there are many great stuffs...
Some artist even use Just colour for the creation of their images. With this they give the image lighting , tone, depth...no line work what so ever. Just the use of colour. One of the most well known and influential for modern artists is Craig Mullins.
One of his works, which is so amazing. It is very fashionable, expressive and vibrant. Only with the use of colours of the right combinations. He works in the film industry for a long time now, it isn't fashion related, but from the image above you can image how great fashion drawings would be if you implemented his colours in a fashion drawing.
