The color-blocking Marie Claire Brazil October 2010 is a bright combination of wearable and fun fashions. Isabel Hickman was photographed by Tiago Molinosi for this eye-popping editorial.

Stylist Leticia Toniazzo created an interesting series of outfits that ranged from wearable to otherworldly. This combination was created with street-ready pieces, consisting of a long blue blazer from Emporio Armani and a bright yellow suit from Patachou.

Implications - Bright colors, bold patterns and virtually anything that will make a consumer stand out from the crowd are increasing in popularity as individuality and personal flavor becomes harder to come by. Styles that seem outlandish are now the hottest on the market because of the consumer need to feel original.
