Zyla describes very thoroughly his color theory in the book Color Your Style.
But, alas, the so called Archetypes, he hardly only mentions.
Pairing 24 subseasons of color with as many ”archetypes” – but how are those? Descriptions please!
Being an archetype is being in some special way. But no.
At last, found this on Expressing Your Truth, starring ………………… .
Pictures that at least give an impression of what the diffrent archetypes look like! Am curious about where I might fit in….
Much to my surprise, under the title:
a cool or deep winter
there was this little cutie Spanish princess from the 17th century. My o my, what I see is warmth. How did she end up among the dark haired and cool skinned Winters? She has my hair color. Margarita Teresia of Spain married at 15 to her uncle, the German Roman emperor. Died at 21. Velasques painted many pictures with her as motive. Here she is, painted by Jan Thomas or Jan Thomas van Ieperen (also Jan Thomas van Yperen) How could anyone mistake this young woman for a Winter? Here, anyway, is a real Zyla Classic Winter (dark and cool): Or is she? Some will have her being a Dark Autumn. Borders are flowing to and through!
The Romantic Poetess
a soft cool winter — Elisabeth Taylor a renowned representant: Likewise: Joan Collins.
The Passionate Leader — Are they really all Leaders?!?
a deep winter
The Earthy Philosopher
a deep or bright winter
So a Philosopher kind of woman can only be a Winter?!?
The Keeper of the Hearth
an even softer winter
Sorry I do not add names of the actresses, but honestly don’t know them. When you are to choose an housekeeper for your home, look at the colors of their clothes. Hire the one dressed in cool soft hues!
a bright/clear winter —sliding in to the ballet floor, Come on, which ”ballerina” features does this lady have?!
Here comes Summers à la Zyla.
This star, watching for birds? Philosophical? Cannot see her as a ballet dancer. But rather a walzer. Here are also Beyoncé and Grace Kelly. Know their names at least. Scarlet Johansson also a Classic beauty, but not represented in this category.
The Glamorous Career Girl
cool deep summer — Mind you: all these woman are dying to make a carreer! They sacrifice home and children to become bosses over global companies. One is Andie MacDonald. Another is…who? Summer. Really? Light may be too evening-ish but rather Autumn, don’t you think?
The Elegant Bohemian
deep clear summer
I know this actress. E.R. and The good wife. Julianne Marguiles or something like that. Don’t look bohemian to me. Though this woman, NN, might. I can see her as a hippie.
The Earth Mother
soft summer Again, evening light. Not what I call an Earth Mother type.
The Drama Queen
soft summer, nearest to an autumn
Presenting Garbo: In golden light. But she’s sure a Summer. And a contribution from Rubens. Mark, the model is muscular, not fat!Might, de facto, be a male! We’re soon into Autumn, so the red hair is appropriate.
Zylas Iridescent Summer
The Mysterious Mermaid
Sweet. And recognizable. But no, her name is a mystery to me. Now for the Zyla Springs:
the Prom Queen
A desperate housewife? No, a Prom queen!
The Playful Princess
light spring Playful? No, brooding and angry at nobody knows what. Gwyneth Paltrow also represented.
The Wholesome Flirt
Actress to the left has my hair. But my skin, rather the one to the right. Anyway am NOT a ”Wholesome Flirt”. Not any Flirt WhatSoEver!!
Love this Fragonard picture. This is me. But nothing flirtatious about this girl:
Life of the Party, Prom Queen, Wholesome Flirt, Playful Princess – sounds they are all one and the same type essentially!
Goldie Hawn is very much a reprensentative for them all!
Were I a Spring, would surely choose Mischivous. But Pixie? A pixie cut? Never. Julia Roberts a Spring? Why not Autumn? And is not this woman a Winter?
French landscape matching Warm Spring.
warm spring. Could be me. But a Maverick. What is a maverick? Says Free Dictionary: A person who shows independence of thought and action, especially by refusing to adhere to the policies of a group to which he or she belongs. Characterized by or displaying independence of thought and action: a person of independent or unorthodox views.a person who takes a stand independent of others in a group.maverick – independent in behavior or thought; ”she led asomewhat irregular private life”; ”maverick politicians”
unconventional – not conforming to accepted rules orstandards; ”her unconventional dress and hair style”
1.rebel, radical, dissenter, individualist, protester, eccentric, heretic,nonconformist, iconoclast, dissentient He was too much of a maverick to hold high office.
rebeltraditionalist, yes man, Babbitt (U.S.), stick-in-the-mud (informal),conventionalist
But this woman’s hairstyle is hardly unique, but rather classic in my opinion. Could have had it myself. Hair color as mine were in younger years. Otherwise, yes, am quite maverick. And Warm Spring too. Or rather between Warm Spring n Warm Autumn.
Autumns of Zyla:
The Sensuous Backpacker
a deep autumn
Isn’t she clear?
The Sexy Librarian
a soft autumn Emma Thompson??? Librarian, really? More a Bohemic type, acc to me.
The Stylish Beatnik
soft autumn -Maybe she is:
The High Stakes Gambler
warm metal autumn One of may polar seasons. But am not a high stake gambler, really.
The Divine Diva
deep metal autumn. Sophiiiiiaaaa: Was she an Autumn from the beginning? Think she was a winter with dark hair she colored red. Her pale pink lipstick not neat on her. Looks sick-ish.
The Passionate Impressario
lighter warm autumn
Could be me, but with redder hair.
Wikipedia: An impresario (from Italian: impresa, meaning ”an enterprise or undertaking”) is a person who organizes and often finances concerts, plays or operas; analogous to an artist manager or a film or television producer. The origin of the term is to be found in the social and economic world of Italian opera, where from the mid-18th century to the 1830s, the impresario was the key figure in the organization of a lyric season. The owners of the theatre, usually noble amateurs, charged the impresario with hiring a composer, for until the 1850s operas on stage were expected to be new, as well as gathering the necessary costumes, sets, orchestra, and singers, all while assuming considerable financial risks. In 1786 Mozart satirized the stress and emotional mayhem in a single-act farce Der Schauspieldirektor (The Impresario). Antonio Vivaldi was unusual in acting as impresario as well as composer: in 1714 he managed seasons at Teatro San Angelo in Venice, where his operaOrlando finto pazzo was followed by numerous others.
Alessandro Lanari (1787–1852), who began as the owner of a shop that produced costumes, eliminated the middleman in a series of successful seasons he produced for the Teatro La Pergola, Florence, which saw premieres of the first version ofVerdi‘s Macbeth, two of Bellini‘s operas and five of Donizetti‘s, including Lucia di Lammermoor. Domenico Barbaia (1778–1841) began as a café waiter and made a fortune at La Scala in Milan, where he was also in charge of the gambling operation and introduced roulette.
The traditional term is still in use in the entertainment industry for a producer of concerts, tours and other events in music,opera, theatre and even rodeo. Significant modern impresarios in the traditional sense include Thomas Beecham, Rudolf Bing, Sergei Diaghilev, Richard D’Oyly Carte, Fortune Gallo, Sol Hurok, Aaron Richmond, and jazz festival producer George Wein.
Application of term
The term is occasionally applied to others, such as independent art museum curators and conference organizers, who take a lead role in orchestrating events.
Jacques-Yves Cousteau said of himself that he was an impresario of scientists as an explorer and filmmaker who worked with scientists in underwater exploration. Nicholas Wade described James D. Watson and E. O. Wilson in The New York Times as impresarios of Charles Darwin‘s works.
