Colour

Last week Pantone released it’s colour for 2014, Radiant Orchid.

You may remember it from my previous post of Spring 2014 colours. My daughters think it is ‘so pretty’ but I must admit it’s not my favourite colour and reminds me of ‘the blue rinse brigade’ from my childhood.

Instead with the PreFall collections showing,  I would rather focus on the colours we can expect to see for Autumn/Winter 2014-15. Pantone has not released their official colours yet but below is a guide from Lenzing who ‘supplies the global textile and nonwovens industry with high-quality man-made cellulose fibres’. These colours look far more exciting to me!

Then the Burberry Prorsum PreFall 14 show was posted on Style.com incorporating nearly all of these colours and I have forgotten about Radiant Orchid!
