What is neon, where does it come from and why is it so infatuating that once you've added it to your wardrobe everything else looks dull and uninteresting? My obsession with neon started no earlier than a year and a half ago, with Christopher Kane's almost entirely neon SS11 line, one of the most unforgettable lines thus far, especially due to the combination of the most unnatural palette of colours with the classiest of materials; lace. It was further enhanced by Jason Wu's SS12 floor length fluorescent gowns and then acid colours made their appearance pretty much everywhere from the catwalk to medium range brands like MSGM and Tibi and of course the high street from H&M to American Apparel and CSC. Needless to say it was already difficult for me to resist anything colourful, so bumping on all shades of fluorescent shorts during my latest shopping spree in London was exactly the neon fix I was craving for. I tried one of them for the first time in Cesme, a beautiful coastal town in Turkey, which I visited during my time in Inousses. What's your take on neon?
