Trend Watch: Oxblood


At the A/W12 shows a stand out commonality was deep red, with claret, burgundy and a generous smattering of oxblood. Undoubtedly the shade of the season, these brooding colours were seen at Acne, Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander Wang. Despite the less-than-appealing name, oxblood gives a luxe feel and is a grown-up take on brash red. Add depth and richness by pairing it with other jewels tones, or instantly make your outfit autumn-friendly with oxblood coloured leather.
