Friday Outfit: Blue

Hi everyone!

This month we are going to talk about primary colours and those which result from the addition and absence of light in "Friday Outfits". That is, red, green, blue, white and black. So you can use the correct accessories to ger your look.

The chosen colour to open June is blue. The Modern English word comes from the Middle English bleu or blewe, from the old French bleu, a word of Germanic origin blao.

We can found this colour just looking up to the sky, or in case of being close to the coast, in the sea. Why is the sky blue? Because molecules in the air scatter blue light from the sun more than they scatter red light. When we look towards the sun at sunset, we see red and orange colours because the blue light has been scattered out and away from the line of sight.

There it goes some curiosities about blue colour:

-Blue belongs to a cold colour scheme and gives a sense of distance. So, when an object is far away, in the horizon, we see it slightly blue. This is because the same reason we see a blue sky.

-In some cultures, royalness is called "blue blood" because Kings didn't labour and had a pale skin, standing his veins out with a blue colour.

-"Blue" can be used in a sentence to say that someone is drunk (Germany), novice (France) or young (Japan)

-Blue colour has a different understanding in every culture. In Japan, the green traffic light can seem blue for occidental people.  

-The colour of Europe flag is blue due to historic differences related with religion, society or culture. Blue was the only colour in common in their flags or symbols. This symbolises peace.

 All the pieces are available on our website and in our boutique in C / Nuñez de Balboa, 90 Madrid. Do not hesitate to come and visit us whenever you wish. It will be a pleasure to welcome you!

Have a nice weekend!

Aurora Optima Jade Fountain Pen

Wonderful pen, very smooth. Customer service from Iguanasell excellent and pen arrived within I day from Madrid to UK. Can’t get better than that.

Midnight in Florence

Fabulous pen, very swift delivery - and best of all, Iguansell covers customs charges to the UK, so the price on the website is what you pay! Altogether excellent!

Visconti Van Gogh Starry Night Fountain

Great looking pen and great to write with!

Beautiful pen

I already own a pelikan m600, my favourite pen. I bought this for my organiser, slightly smaller and fine nib for the thinner lines. The pen looks stunning, great quality apart from the nib which felt very scratchy and irritating to use. I managed to fix it my self by polishing it with micro mesh. Writes fine now, but at this price I don’t expect to have to fix quality control issues myself, it should be just perfect out of the box.
