More than any other colour, red (in its many incarnations) is always right. It tells others to stop and take notice; so no wonder, then, that it’s a key hue for summer – the showiest of seasons. Melissa Odabash’s flattering halterneck swimsuit will add heat to your poolside style, while Zvelle, a new footwear brand based in Toronto, plays on the appeal of a flash of crimson with their Sydney pumps. Even housework can be glam thanks to West Elm’s cheerful cherry dustpan set. Looks like seeing red, at the moment at least, is a good thing after all.
