Color Story: The Meaning of Red, plus Bags and Gloves!

DISCOVER: THE POWERFUL COLOR RED

The color of passion, energy, danger, and in Asian culture, the color of happiness.

The origin of the word red comes from the Old English rēd. Traced to the Proto-Germanic rauthaz and the Proto-Indo European root reudh and in Sanskrit, the word rudhira means red or blood. The color red has a rich history all around the world having been used since the time of cave paintings and throughout history in art, fashion and decor.

It is a color that inspires! Wearing it and having it surround you boost the spirit and confidence. Of course it pairs beautifully with neutral colors and is the perfect addition to an all black wardrobe for that perfect pop of color, great in cooler months.
