When a color or style is trendy/tendance in Paris
You see it everywhere
And not just in fashion or accessories like scarves...
What about a purple/le pourpre bag/sac to carry your baguette home in?
Purple CHOCOLATE lipstick?
Purple/violette/le pourpre flowers will go well with you purple outfit
The essential touch of yellow (the color compliment of purple) will make the purple that much more intense
Yellow is directly across the color wheel from purple so they're buddies and will always enhance each other.
Someone in the Metro was thinking about color compliments...
And this poster designer too.
Window dressers must be aware of how colors behave. It doesn't take much either - just a touch of the opposite color can do a world of good, like in this Printemps Xmas window with Dior dollies.

Someone needs to drop a hint in this papeterie display, ahem
Greengrocers and boulangeries always know their color wheel. They play and display colors everyday. These eclairs could be bleu but surrounded by yellow they take on a purplish look.
What do you think?
