Why So IKBlue?

Artist Yves Klein mixed together a colour he called International Klein Blue (or IKB) for his performance-related work in the 1950s . He applied the bright blue paint to naked women and got them roll on canvases making prints of their bodies. It transferred into voluptuous shapes full of life and movement.

Now I’m seeing this bright blue hue everywhere and what better way to convey Klein's art into fashion than in tight-fitting body-con dresses that emphasise every curve.
