The Rolling Stones have a song called “Paint It Black.” Told from a surviving lover’s viewpoint, the song wallows in the darkness and grief that comes with losing a partner to death. They dream of a world sans color because color is just too joyous to be around anymore. Yet, when a town like New York City is shrouded in clouds, fog, and sheets of rain, color is vital to keeping spirits up. And that’s exactly what the NYFW crowd did yesterday, becoming beacons of light and spirit with cheeky pops of color and bold patterns. All black everything may be a New Yorker’s uniform, but magic is made when they dip their feet in ponds of blues, yellows, oranges, greens, and reds. Consider us charmed.
