We’ve seen color block styles popping up all over the internet and thought we’d take a look at it through the lens of C&B. Started in the 1940s with an Yves St. Laurent color block dress, this style has been around for quite some time. But the trend didn’t really make it to mainstream culture until the mod movement of the 60s. Inspired by expression, experimentation and bright colors, this fresh incarnation has taken mod and made it current.
