Fall 2013 Color Profile

As the days get shorter and the mornings get cooler, we are are drawn to soft, natural colors that reflect the world around us. Leaves change color…and so do our wardrobes. What do our favorite designers have in store for us this fall? Let’s take a color tour!

Fall Color Fashion Trends

Emerald – jewels fit for a king, warm tropical waters, brightly colored plumage.  Emerald is such a rich hue, mostly green with just a little blue, and blends nicely with cool colors like Mykonos Blue or contrasts with brights like Vivacious.  Look for emerald in the collections of Catimini, Joah Love, and Desigual.

Mykonos Blue – azure skies and calm seas of the Mediterranean, this deep blue has energy but soothes at the same time.  And it’s just a little bit moody.  Look for blue in the collections of Sara Sara, Desigual, Pom Pom and Catimini.

Turbulence – cool grey, misty, sophisticated.  Grey is the canvas on which to paint subtle patterns or bright rainbows.  Combine it with earthy browns and greens for a clashy, industrial silhouette, or decorate it with pink, lime and yellow.  Grey is soft and rigid, all at once, taking you from extremely casual to primly formal.  Look for Turbulence grey throughout our catalog, including Biscotti, Kate Mack, Deux par Deux, Catimini, Pampolina, Sierra Julian, Ooh! La, La! Couture and more.

Carafe – rich, glamorous, powerful.  The color of wood, leather and chocolate.  Brown is and has always been.  This luxurious shade is where chocolate absorbs olive and cordovan, leaving just the essence of both green and red undertones for the richest brown.  (And it’s also the color of grizzly bears – yikes!)
