Not only does the colour green stand for hope, it’s also the colour of nature and life. In spring, when the dull grey of winter finally disappears, the days are getting longer and the first strong sunbeams provide plenty of chlorophyll, the meadows and forests shine in a lush green again and symbolise the triumphal victory of spring against winter. New life begins and even the most stubborn couch potatoes have to go outside now – to enjoy the sun and take a deep breath. Green has always had a soothing effect on people and it emanates harmony and balance – no wonder that the colour green had been the dominant colour in the salons of Europe until the early 20th century. In clothing, the colour green also has a relaxing effect. That’s why especially stressed ladies should wear a green dress every now and then: after all, green dresses on the body are proven to provide balance and serenity. So, we advocate the following statement: More green for everyone!
