At First Blush

January 20, 2016

The Pre-Fall collections have been in full swing, providing a glimpse into what designers may be showing when fashion week rolls around in mid-February. Pre-Fall also tends to be more consumer focused, as opposed to the spectacles that take place on the runways. One thing is for certain, it seems that next season, designers will be tickled pink!
Shades of pink, from barely there blush, to fully saturated versions are popping up as accents to more nuetral collections.

Jason Wu showed an impeccably cut dusty rose coat with military details.

At Dior, pink mixes with red and black for a graphic take on the trend. The soft pink double breasted coat provides a feminine touch to an edgy look.

Two Are Better Than One

December 4, 2015

Every December, the color experts at Pantone announce their choice for the color of the year. This time, they surprised us by declaring not one, but two shades, as the colors of the year for 2o16.

Serenity, an icy blue, and Rose Quartz, a soft classic pink, are intended to evoke a sense of gender equality and fluidity, reflecting in fashion, what is happening in society.

According to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute: “In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.”

Pantone has commissioned street artists in Los Angeles, Miami and New York City to create murals overnight to depict the two shades.

Think Pink

Pink was the surprise color of the season, with hues ranging from strong and vibrant, to soft and pastel ruling the runways.

Even the softest of shades had a strength to them. This is not your average girlie pink!

Costume National used  hot pink for modern clothes with a sexy vibe:
