While not as interesting as Lindsay Lohan
going impersonating Marilyn Monroe, there was an intriguing feature in New York magazine about
people who wear all one
colour. Don’t worry, black wasn’t allowed – otherwise it would have just
been a feature on Goths.
There’s a shoe designer who only wears
blue, a fashion designer in grey, an industrial designer who wears pink and
white at separate times (that’s two colours, the cheat), a fabric designer in
green and Stephin Merritt, who only wears brown. The article is interesting if only for the
pomposity of the interviewees. The industrial designer (is that just fancy talk
for architect?) stated that wearing white made him feel “angelic and free”.
Presumably, wearing black made him feel like the grim reaper.
