International Klein Blue

Everyone's talking about Klein Blue being one of the trends of the upcoming season, and I'm pumped; it's one of my favorites.

For those that aren't familiar with this cryptic "International Klein Blue" color, it's the vivid blue of Mexican tile, of the background you might see in a picture of Frida Kahlo, and of a perfectly polished piece of lapis lazuli. In the 50's, French artist Yves Klein used the color in a series of monochromatic works, and ever after his name will be attached to it. In any case, it's like this:
