Klein Blue, or better, International Klein Blue was developed by the French artist Yves Klein to have the same color brightness and intensity as dry pigments.
Here’s a view of one of his exhibitions, with some of his monochrome works:

If you are curious about his work, see this great Flickriver group.
So, few weeks ago, I noticed how there was a blue trend on my Pinterest finds. Then, as I was choosing the images for the Fall 2012 posts, I realized this is one of the big trends for next Fall (also a bit this Summer), so I thought it would be nice to make another color themed post.
