grey + neon = love

By Marlene | Published: 31. May 2013
You know what goes really well with white jeans and a grey sweatshirt? Neon yellow. I'm obviously biased because of the name, but I'm still giddy with excitement that „The Marlene” is available again in neon yellow. When James made the original, so many of you wrote and asked about it. And now it's back! The shade is a little softer than the colour [...]
