Here we are with another trend! The beloved and hated neon! And again, courtesy of our dear @kimkardashian
, thank you dear! Leaping all the scientific part that involves the neon and its creation, let's go to what interests us: the trendy neon.
In the 1960s, Andy Warhol gained worldwide recognition with pop art serigraphs that used neon colors (you must remember your classic Marilyn Monroe), in the next two decades, especially in the 1980s, the pigment was already in everything, combining with the optimistic wave of the era!
Clothes, makeup, accessories, imagine that in a decade the films still had half-erased colors and in the following years everything became so colorful. The neon was seen as a way of expressing the rebellion of that time, fueled by colorful MTV and artists such as Madonna, films with teens conquering the world in their fluorescent clothes, soon the pieces paraded through the most exciting cities in the world.
Still in 1980, designer Robin Piccone launched a beachwear line called Body Glove, where fluorescent colors made the pieces even more interesting. If you want to imagine how it was, just watch the various celebrities parading along the beaches or on their yachts with thong bikinis these days.
In the late 1990s and early 1900s, designers such as Jeremy Scott revived the neon glamor, the characters in the popular The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air series starring Will Smith were always including extravagant fluorescent pieces in their looks and have been since then, the neon goes back and forth, at the moment it follows timidly for the mainstream.
