Red, yellow, and blue popped up everywhere on the SS07 runways.

You red my mind. A pinch of cinch is all that you need because wide leather belts are waning! At Marni, a sporty coat (top left) is adorned by an obi-style belt. Martin Grant's slick trench (top middle) paints the town in the most scandalous shade of devil red any day or night. At Costello Tagliapietra, a few punches of red jersey, including the beautiful wrap dress (top right), stood out amidst a collection of muted and earthy colors.

Those yell-oh girls. Preen's yellow dress (middle left) with that hyperbolic tulip skirt shines like the sun. At Lanvin, Alber Elbaz fused high tech with high fashion in a sulfur yellow silk number (middle). Trapeze still ruled at Giambattista Valli with a voluminous confection in the form of a dress in yummy lemon meringue (middle right).

Yes, they are bluetiful. Raf Simons did a wonderful job at Jil Sander, pairing black and white with statement brights like orange, green, and blue (bottom left). Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy displayed a head-to-toe blue outfit (bottom middle) with lovely ornamental braiding on the jacket. Though sexy neon and crazy prints ruled Emanuel Ungaro, beautiful simplicity rested on his less provocative pieces like the blue chiffon dress (bottom right).

In addition, check out Eley Kishimoto's collection. I think they demonstrated the best use of the Crayola color trend, perfect for spring! Trust!
