Scientists have pointed out that people's sensitivity to color far exceeds the sensitivity to shape, so the status of color in clothing design is crucial. Clothing design focuses on the feeling, emotion and symbol of color, heat absorption and heat dissipation, and color matching. There are four main types of color perception:
One is warmth. Blue and cyan are easily reminiscent of the sky and the ocean, and produce a sense of coolness, which is called cool color, which is suitable for summer clothes; red, orange, and yellow are easily reminiscent of the sun and fire, and produce a sense of heat, which is called warm color, suitable for For winter clothes; green and purple are easy to associate with green plants, flowers, etc., called neutral colors, and are often used in spring and autumn clothes.
The second is lightness. Colors with high lightness make people feel light, and colors with low lightness make people feel heavy. Therefore, the color brightness of bottoms is generally lower than that of tops, so as to maintain stability and solemnity. The third is the sense of advance and retreat and expansion and contraction. Colors with high lightness and purity and warm colors have a sense of progress and expansion, and white is the strongest; colors with low lightness and purity and cool colors have a sense of retreat and contraction, and black is the strongest. The fourth is the sense of softness and hardness. Colors with high lightness and medium purity are soft and mild, and Suzhou women's clothing should be used for women's clothing, summer clothes or underwear; colors with low lightness and high or low purity are rigid and serious, and suitable for men's clothing, elderly clothing, winter clothing or outerwear.
In addition, the color also has a sense of thickness, light and shade, and a sense of strength and weakness. The emotions and symbols of colors vary from country to country, region, nation, culture, etc. For example, in China, red gives people a sense of enthusiasm, symbolizing joy; yellow gives people a sense of tenderness, symbolizing hope; purple gives people a sense of elegance, symbolizing nobility; black gives people a sense of seriousness, symbolizing solemnity; white gives people a sense of simplicity , symbolizing purity; gold and silver give people a sense of gorgeousness, symbolizing wealth and so on.
Therefore, the appropriate color should be selected according to the purpose of the clothing. Color absorbs heat and dissipates heat. The color with low lightness has the strongest ability to absorb light and heat, and black is the strongest; the color with high lightness has the strongest ability to reflect light and heat, and white is the strongest. Suzhou women's clothing color matching usually adopts the same color (monochrome), similar color (adjacent color), secondary color, complementary color (contrast color). In addition, achromatic colors and layered color matching that change sequentially from light to dark and from pure to turbid are also used. One color is the main color supplemented by other colors. The color combination of clothing and shoes, hats, gloves, socks, belts, etc. is also a color matching content. Combination methods include unified method, echo method, cohesion method, embellishment method, buffer method, segmentation method and foil contrast method, which should be selected flexibly.
The ever-changing colors can be divided into two categories: chromatic and achromatic. All levels of gray made up of black, white, and black and white are achromatic. White is the highest level of brightness and black is the lowest level of brightness. All colors other than the achromatic family belong to the chromatic family. The color of the color system consists of three elements: hue, lightness, and purity.
Hue The names of different colors are called hue, such as big red, lake blue, medium yellow, etc. Hue is the most important feature of color. According to the order of hue, it can be cyclically arranged into a hue circle. In the ever-changing world of colors, the variety of hues of Suzhou trench coats and down jackets is the primary factor.
Brightness is an attribute of the change of light and shade of color, which is caused by the difference in the amount of light reflected by various colored objects.
Purity, also known as chroma and saturation, is the purity of a color including color. Red, orange, yellow, green, cyan, and violet obtained from spectral analysis are standard pure colors. The higher the purity, the brighter and brighter the color.
Clothing color matching of the same color The matching of the same color is to carry out color matching through the different changes of the same hue in light and shade.
Clothing color matching of similar colors Similar color matching refers to the matching of colors within 90 degrees on the hue circle, giving people a sense of gentle harmony. Compared with the same color combination, the color sense is more varied, so its application range in clothing is wider than that of the same color combination.
Contrasting color clothing color matching Contrasting color matching refers to the color matching within the range of 120 degrees to 180 degrees on the hue circle.
Relative color matching of clothing Relative color matching refers to the matching of two opposite colors at both ends of the 180-degree hue circle. The effect is stronger than that of contrasting color combinations. In the relative color matching, attention should be paid to the primary and secondary relationship, and at the same time, the contrast effect can be more interesting by adding intermediate colors.
