ragamuffin loves...all the colours of the rainbow!
The one remark we always get from first time visitors goes along the lines of "look at all the lovely colours" or "it's so colourful - like an Aladdins cave!". We take pride in putting together colours in creative & unusual ways, in stocking very little black and in having pretty much every colour in the rainbow - not just having colours in stock because they are deemed to be fashionable but stocking colourful clothes because they are fabulous!
Of course we are beholden to trends as everyone is. Over the last few years teals, petrols and aquas have become ubiquitous (which is fine by us as they suit the celtic complexion as much as they suit mediteranian skin tones!). We thought we might never stock orange again but it has had a fashion moment and we found ourselves adding a bit of mandarin to the mix. Along with mustard, burgundy has had a return to popularity and again, we are pleased as it is lovely mixed with earth tones and pure white on a hot summers day.
For a bit of fun we thought we'd make up an outfit for each of the seven colours of the rainbow - let us know which is your favourite!
