Wu Xing is named after the 5 elements: Wood, Earth, Water, Metal, and Fire. For this collection, I created 5 different colours surrounding each element to form 5 mini-themes. Each element is associated with different aspects of nature which I've incorporated into the mini-themes. Each association is not only related to its own element but I've chosen to link them between each element, by either the type of product finish, or product itself.

All the colours within an element can be used together to create a look - similar to what I do with Visage.
