I've Got The Blues: The Yves Klein Blues!


While browsing Stylesight today, I came across a Celebrity Fashion Trendboard about dresses in Yves Klein blue, that iconic deep hue first mixed by the French artist in 1958. I looked down. The leggings I recently snagged at H&M were perfectly International Klein Blue (IKB as it’s called by those in the know). Inspired, I scoured Stylesight for more images of my new fav color, which was a snap thanks to the Color Category in their easily navigated Search. Check it out!

Then I looked to the Streets Category to see if IKB, revived by the fabulous Nicolas Ghesquiere of Balenciaga and so popular on the Spring/Summer runways, had made it to the masses of the world.
