  • ROY G BiV

    June 28, 2012 | 2 Comments »

    Do you listen to Radio Lab? Have you heard the episode about Color? If not, listen right now! Seriously, it's totally fascinating. In the first segment, the guys discuss the seven colors that humans can percieve (that's ROY G BiV to you!), illustrating the spectrum with a choir (!) then go on to talk about creatures that can see many more colors, including the winner, the mantis shrimp, which has a whopping 16 color receptors!
    In honor of this brilliant episode and the oh-so colorful 2013 Resort collections, I thought I would highlight some favorites, rainbow-style.
