Turn on the Neon


From the runway to the roadway, electric colors rule again.

The Brooklyn native and official artist for Bloomingdale’s recently had a three-month show at downtown’s CityArts Factory where he exhibited his sexy, psychedelic imagery. “Bold colors are what I like,” says Pop, whose real name is Noah Greenspan. Pop divines the aura of his subjects by using colored lights and digital layers until the work becomes kinetic and sparks with life. Besides photos, Pop also makes one-of-a-kind silk-screened T’s featuring his signature style. Sibyl, 45x30, $1,050, noahgpop.com.

 

Neon. Acid. Day-Glo. Hot. Psychedelic. Whatever you call it, blinding bright color is back. Hipsters with a thirst for anything ’80s started wearing neon several seasons ago, and now mainstream retailers such as J Crew and Banana Republic are picking up the trend. Sneakers, watches, electronics and even scooters are also going in colors such as acid green and neon blue.

To wear electric hues without looking like a hair band reject, keep most of the wardrobe neutral and add a shot of neon color, such as a skinny belt or handbag. Or, if you dare, wear a piece of clothing in a single hot color, but make sure the construction is tailored and neat—such as a lemon yellow pencil skirt or an electric pink shift dress—to keep it modern-looking.
