isnt that trend called 'ombre'??

what i hate is that it's already 'killed' by being copied to death @ Zara

when it gets copied it means two things,

the good thing is that it's available to people who cant afford the expenssive brands..

the bad thing is that it's available to people who can't afford the expensive brands which means that there's a possibility that you'll see it everywhere

^true -- it's sort of a technique that's difficult to make original
it's just a very easy idea

i like prada's though
the use of hatching in the men's
and the transforming in textures for the women's (fw 07)
So, it's really not just the colour that's changing

would be curious to see what the high street brands /less expensive brands are producing i wonder how it could compare

i also like Prada's version most but.. like saann said above due to Zara's copies it's everywhere

hence to be avoided (by me)

other fading at Raf Simons FW 08

like rain water





--

Here, colour washes on a fabric



--

& fuzzy / soft lines when changing from colour to colour


I read on the International Herald Tribune (?) that the Prada one for women's wear (fading orange on black-- like this Raf Simon's one^ with blurred/soft lines) is described as silk screen print of a dress on a dress

Also wanted to mention there are a few looks in the Raf Simons collection which are super super subtle..

medium grey to light grey in 'random' spots


but ^ i think it is just the fabric going from translucent to opaque

--

here is another look
two tones..


it's possible my eyes are just playing tricks on me though i'd have to see it in person .. but they're all good ideas, i think!

pics : same source

Getting fading colors to work is best when two complimentary colors blend together nicely. Being a computer artist, I may frequently use gradients when designing backgrounds (like my Myspace page). I commonly mix a dark (but not too dark) blue color along with a royal blue color. Having a color fade into black also works. But there are cases when blending two colors can produce a horrid result. For example, you can't mix colors like ice blue blending into red, green fading into orange, pastel pink blending into chocolate brown, and that kind of thing. Warm colors blend nicely with other warm colors, likewise for cool colors. White and black are usually the go-with-everything colors, so good colors that blend into white or black go perfectly fine as well as the garment in question doesn't have a truly mismatched color style. I expect lighter colors be merged with white for some beautiful effects to garments for the Spring and maybe into the Summer as well. Getting something that makes a great color combination may just be trial and error. It really rewards the creative and artistic kind of person to find a good garment colored with fading colors. Not to mention a GOOD mix of colors rather than something a color combination drunkard would put together.

Definately see this as part of the 90s revival. I remember when the dip dye was huge in the 90s so it kind of took a little time for my eyes to get adjusted to it again. Now I love it!

Originally NOT a fan of this trend, but some of the pictures in this thread, I must admit is pretty neat! I just assosiate the whole gradient/dye-thing with a friend of mine who had a hippie-thing going. and... bleeugh!
