Chromotherapy, or the surprising benefits of shopping

Colors have a direct effect on our emotions and moods. Chromotherapy is the use of colors to heal and make you feel good. Good timing – the spring collection is bursting with exhilarating colors.

Hello yellow!
Bright and lively yellow stimulates brain activity, which helps expand the mind and the imagination. It evokes the sun and positive energy, alleviating sadness and the blues, so we highly recommend wearing this dress on Sunday nights and accessorizing it with this cross-body bag.

Get the green light
We immediately associate green with nature. And it has remarkably similar effects to a nice walk in the forest. Green hues have soothing powers that can calm the nerves and dissipate anger. (Who me? I never get angry.) The perfect antidote for stress and fatigue, green symbolizes rebirth and, by extension, the new cool and collected woman you’ll be when you get the Le Pliage bag in khaki or a pretty aniseed stole.

Blue-sky thinking
Take a little break from the chaos. According to the principles of chromotherapy, blue offers peace and tranquility to act as a “natural calmer” for the daily stresses of life. It’s enough to make us want to double the dosage, for example by mixing the bright blue of a silk blouse with the bright blue of a Pénélope Fantaisie bag. This color gets even more irresistible in all its different shades, from indigo to the navy blue of a mock conservative skirt. And since blue is also capable of making us less self-centered, we are on the verge of begrudgingly sliding in a link to the best of blue in the men’s collection.

Eye-popping orange
Like jumping out of bed and gulping down a nice glass of freshly squeezed OJ, orange is the anti-fatigue superhero. It’s the epitome of pumped-up color that’s perfect for making us feel optimistic and seeing the glass half full. To get all the goodness out of orange, slip a terracotta clutch into your orange Quadri and adorn your wrist with a stylish paprika bracelet.

Paint the town red
Red is the color of power, health and vitality. It triggers thoughts of ambition, so it’ll be perfect for that job interview or business meeting, for example on a teddy-style jacket or sleeveless parka. And since good things come in pairs, this symbol of fire and warmth is even recommended for curing cold-weather afflictions like the shivers and joint or muscle pain, plus it can improve blood circulation. So there are no more excuses for running to meetings all over town. And don’t bother changing your jacket before dinner tonight, red is also the color of love and romance…
