Minimalist Layers in Grey
All this ‘creative witticism’ that suddenly came up and spread out all over the internet when it comes to the colour grey tends to be quite amusing, I have to admit. It’s funny that one single popular novel like Fifty Shades of Grey can obtain the potency to radically change the verbal and written handling of this wonderful (non-)colour worldwide. Today, talking about grey without a humorous side note indicating the fact that one is completely aware of this huge success of light fiction by E.L. James, seems to be a sheer impossibility. I hope, however, that I can protect this little text from any allusions to those world-famous fifty shades. I’ll try my best…
But nevertheless, there’s no doubt that I’m a great admirer of grey clothes and accessories in general – although I wear them all too seldom. When I saw this (fake) cable-knit sweater online, I fancied it right away. Grey can sometimes let you look pale-faced, but this sweater is somehow different. I just love wearing it although it makes me appear a little bulky.
By the way, I’m really into grey industrial walls or grey imagery, too. Do you know the blurry grey paintings by Gerhard Richter? I could sink into the museum chair and daydream for hours everytime I see one of them. Grey definitely rocks.
Á propos daydreams: Do you remember how I went into rhapsodies about this bright and sunny weather yesterday? I hope it’s not me to blame, but – unsurprisingly – the grey sky with lots of rain and clouds took over again today.
