Lagenlook : Purple

Or…all the shades of Purple, ranging from the berry reds through to deep royal purple. Including favourites like Mauve, Lavender, Lilac, Plum, Aubergine/Eggplant, Violet, Dark Pink, Fuschia. I never imagined there were so many variations in the colour spectrum between Red and Violet. 

Here are some “Purple” Lagenlook garments that I’ve curated from Pinterest. From my own personal experience with photographing colours, purple can sometimes appear on photos looking almost like brown. 

Yes, there are loads of images today, but that’s because there are so many shades of purple to choose from. My favourite is Aubergine, actually. (Here’s a bit of Trivia for you – the vegetable known as Aubergine is also known in other countries as Eggplant or Brinjal. Some varieties are more purple than others. I like them in curries and Malaysian Laksa).

Purples are great as they complement many other colours. Think purple with lime green. Purple with ochre or earthy tones. Purple with orange. Purples layered with reds and the colours of Autumn. Purple with silver. Purple over blue jeans. Or the classic combination – purple with white. So versatile!
