I was out shopping the other day with a friend, when we came across these Kate Spade handbags (below) and noticed the use of color blocking, a trend I have seen making a comeback in fashion. I think it makes an interesting use in architecture, art, interiors, and fashion!

Loving this Kate Spade handbag!

When I see color blocking, I always think of the artist Mondrian.

The work of artist Piet Mondrian.

And also the work of Le Corbusier, which I blogged about before here.

A feature in modern architecure.

A crossover into fashion.

The Fall 2011 LookBook on features an entire collection dedicated to color blocking.

I had also seen this shirt at ZARA.

And these ballerina flats, too.

Now I miss my Color Theory class I took year’s ago in design school!

Great post! I have always been a huge fan of color blocking, probably because I love anything to do with the sixties!

I fell in love with Mondrian while a geometry student in college, and now my whole life is just one big color blocked world. All based on phi of course!

Colour blocking has always been one of my favourite looks, especially when it comes to fashion (Just look at the dress!) and art!

Didn’t realise how good it looked in architecture.
