With complements



I took pictures of these two buildings at the front and back of a marketing agency I work in. The old architecture of these offices exudes a nostalgia for the business district of a past era, before all those high-rise towers ruled the skyline.



What I didn't immediately notice though was that the bluish glare from the windows produced a pleasant palette of subdued colors. The mix is similar to that employed for this outfit from Burberry Prorsum's SS 09 collection.







Here, different hues of blue and orange are used for two more outfits from the SS 09 collections of Bottega Veneta, Missoni, Belstaff, and Dolce & Gabbana. Missoni's and Belstaff's vibrant mix takes after one of the best complementary pairs I have ever seen:



But for the bag obsessed, can Ayers Rock (now officially called Uluru) be more breathtaking than Bottega Veneta's new pieces?






Whatever the verdict, I would say, on the matter of complements, the exquisite woven leather bags would look better on the Missoni man.
