The Red Dress

March 24, 2017

Red is the color of extremes. It’s the color of passionate love, seduction, violence, danger, anger, 
and adventure. Our prehistoric ancestors saw red as the color of fire and blood – energy and primal life forces – and most of red’s symbolism today arises from its powerful associations in the past.
Red is also a magical and religious color. It symbolized super-human heroism to the Greeks and is the color of the Christian crucifixion. Red was almost as rare and as expensive as purple in ancient days – a fact that may explain its magic and power. Paradoxically, today’s intense red dyes come from crushed insects (the lac beetle and the cochineal).
I recently have a little obsession with red, especially red dresses. I just find them super feminine, attractive, fun, powerful. I feel good when wearing red, it's simply...empowering! Without further ado, I present to you one of the coolest dresses I've had in the past year - a red lace symphony from Metisu
