There has been so much color block on the runways lately  that you would think it was a fashion phenomenon that we have never witnessed before, but Rudi Gernreich introduced color block to fashion back in the 1960s.  The example below is from 1973 and might inspire Raf Simons (just got to meet him and he is such a gentleman and an incredible talent to match) or Phoebe Philo.  Who doesn't dig color block?  It always looks right but it's best by the master, Rudi Gernreich.  It's always a Rudi moment in my book and I am certainly partial since curating THE TOTAL LOOK, which is currently on display at the SCAD Musuem in Savannah through 7 Ocotber.
