Impossible to Ignore, Hyperreal Brights

Adding instant vibrancy to apparel and accessories, Hyperreal Brights create a youthful, playful look that shouts to be noticed, working as either colorful blocks of saturated neon or as fluro accents, and demonstrate their dynamic versatility across both menswear and womenswear.



Menswear receives vivid suffusions of color, proving that this trend ain’t just for the girls. Walter Van Beirendonck and Mugler emphasize zesty all-over shades of lemon and lime in two-piece ensembles, while Versace’s shocking pink tee offers a contemporary twist on traditional masc-femme styling.

Apparel and accessories are saturated in vibrant ‘look-at-me’ shades, adding youthful wearability to ensembles. William Okpo’s transparent emergency red hat offers futuristic chic, while Betsey Johnson’s canary yellow dress clashes with hot pink gloves. Acne’s apple-green jacket enhances muted shades of moss and tan.

Classic feminine pinks are updated with loud, shocking hues, making for a contemporary look, as seen in Catherine Malandrino’s belted robe and Diane Von Furstenberg’s tee. Meanwhile, eye-watering yellow neon livens up even the most somber of Fall/Winter outfits, as seen in the styling of Paul Smith’s tee.

Hyperreal accents of color offer a played-down interpretation of the trend that still makes for a vivid look. A charcoal gray coat is brightened up with a neon chest panel at Paul Smith, while Thakoon’s skirt juxtaposes color as well as texture in dual dimensions. Acne’s neutral heels are offset by a subtle neon panel detail.
