Acid green, bitter lime, chartreuse, electric crimson and fluorescent pink…..
If you’re sitting there having Flashbacks of dancing in your room, hairbrush in hand, while singing Pat Benatar in the best off key way you know how… then you know that I am talking about neon. Thanks to Oscar de la Renta and celebrities like Julie Bowen, this 80’s craze is now becoming “haute” stuff. Now before you bring out your scrunchies and start teasing your hair… let’s have a little chat about the do’s and the don’ts.
DO: KEEP IT SIMPLE
Wearing neon is like texting in all caps.. so be ready for it. There is a very fine line to cross into Boy George land. Pair neon with a neutral like ivory, peach or even lilac.
DON’T: CHANNEL BIG BIRD
You know what I’m talking about.. don’t do it. Just.. don’t
DO: GO FOR A POP
Pop’s of neon can brighten any outfit, and day. Whether you have some facetime with a swipe of neon pink lipstick or a small bright cross body handbag, a small pop of the colour can go a long way.
DON’T: LOOK LIKE AN EXTRA FROM A WHAM VIDEO
Read above… just a pop of neon.. not the whole club pack.

I woke up this morning thinking.. “Oh no, it’s here.. Monday found me!” All I wanted to do was pull the blankets over my head and tell responsibility I wasn’t ready for it today. But alas, my coffee craving overpowered the desire to sleep so off I went to face the day with my new caffeine fueled enthusiasm.
Walking into work after a weekend, nothing can really prepare you for what you will face that day. I felt it as soon as I stepped in the door. That feeling that can only be described as butterflies that had too much Redbull. It crept from my stomach and warmed in my throat. I couldn’t catch my breath, I couldn’t form proper sentences, but there it was… A full blown Brand Crush! It seems over the weekend we got in a TON of new stock and what I was seeing was nothing short of love. The colours, the textures and oh my.. the cuts! I had to touch them, try them on, see every single item that we got in because they were too beautiful not to!
It seems that MinkPink has buried a hole in my heart and built a home in there. As I draped myself in these fabulous flowing fabrics it dawned on me…… FESTIVAL SEASON IS UPON US! In just a couple of short weeks the season will begin and I don’t know about you, but I want to be prepared.
With my Monday now being filled with childlike excitement of a new found love, I knew I had to share it with everyone and spread it around.

You heard it right, the Seventies. If we can take anything away from the most previous Fashion Week it’s that influences from hippie chic, patchworks of vintage prints, mixes of patterns, and subtle (and not so subtle) nods to the era are what are making a rapid comeback. Here at Frakas we have been channelling our inner bohemian goddess’s and letting the eclectic mix of colours,patterns and textures take us away. Dust off the old platforms and set your Instagram filter to “1977” because this one is going to carry you all the way through to the end of Summer!
