When red met pink it was love at first sight and now the pair are inseparable. Whether it’s fuschia and russet or blush and ruby, these vibrant hues can play-off each other perfectly when handled with a contemporary touch. This colour clash started a couple of seasons ago, with pink having been on trend for a couple of years and red having it's moment last Autumn, now seems like the perfect time toss out the style rule book and ignore everything you’ve ever been told about ‘clashing colours’.
