Share of an Observation on One Trendy Colour

The only place I still hesitate to go in till yesterday was the bookshop. It felt different, I had no problem walking into a bookshop in Tokyo without speaking Japanese, cause I somehow know the Japanese praise English speakers, and must have an English book section/corner in the shop. Bingo, I bought 'Norwegian Wood' by Haruki Murakami in English there. 

But in a small city where the official language is Bavarian, I would be a bit embarrassed to be the customer who is in the bookshop only for birthday cards or a pink silicone spatula with a bird pattern. So I told myself, I can anyhow buy a magazine in German, I do not have to pretend, I can read it, not literally, pictorially maybe.

So I bought 'VOGUE', VOGUE Germany to be exact. Normally I do not relate the colour red to summer, however the Vol.June, early summer edition is full of redness. With some yellow, some orange and some blue.

On a recent trip to the DIY retail store, I grabbed a 2 inch deck of colour cards, thank you SCHÖNER WOHNEN-FARBE for being my unawared colour suppliers.

It is not easy for an individual to get access to a colour database, and the Pantone colour book is out of my budget.

Red is not an easy colour,  for me it always give a hint of matureness and aggressiveness. Especially when it is applied on smaller surfaces, because it gives a certain confidence only mature women wear, ' Hey, you, look at my red fucking Purse. '
