M-Couture would like to share with you our passion for blue…
Blue is the color of royalty, it is the most elegant and sophisticated color in nature.
Blue ranks so high as a favorite color that you can’t go wrong if you use blue. This color exhibits an inner security and confidence.
Blue was a latecomer among colors used in art and decoration, as well as language and literature.
Blue had first become the high fashion color of the wealthy and powerful in Europe in the 13th century, when it was worn by Louis IX of France. Wearing blue implied dignity and wealth, and blue clothing was restricted to the nobility, also known as blue-blood.
In about the 9th century, Chinese artisans used blue, made with cobalt salts of alumina, to manufacture fine blue and white porcelain. Beginning in the 14th century, this type of porcelain was exported in large quantity to Europe where it inspired a whole style of art, called Chinoiserie.
Blue was a favorite color of the impressionist painters, who used it not just to depict nature but to create moods, feelings and atmospheres.
At the beginning of the 20th century, many artists recognized the emotional power of blue, and made it the central element of paintings.
Blue is also associated with dreams and secret longings, because every time we lift our eyes towards the blue skies, we’re instantly inspired for great things. Dare to lift your eyes towards the skies and day-dream!
Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones… it will always stay blue;” Raoul Dufy, French Fauvist Painter, 1877-1953.
