Red is my mother’s favourite colour so by proxy I’ve had a lot of experience wearing the hue head to toe like it’s no thang. It wasn’t until later on in my teens, when I learnt my horoscope sign was Aries; a fiery sign whose power colour is scarlet, that I consciously decided I needed to get back to my power hue roots.

Red became associated less with awkward crimson cord overalls and more with Jessica Rabbit’s ruby slinkiness, the classic beauty of Valentino, power of a Ferrari, Louboutin soles and that dress Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman. Whether traffic light, cherry, scarlet or tomato this season’s hue is coming in red hot across the runways of Dior, Hermes, Marni and Fendi among others.
