There is no color I like better than green. All varieties of it. This Fall, greens come back in more somber and saturated versions in lush fabrics like velvet, high-pile knits and heavy cable knits.
I dedicate a lot of time analyzing colors and the casts they are made in, for example a lot of colors this season are yellow and grey casted which means they aren’t a “typical grass green” but a more toned down and less obvious green.
This season the mustard/forest/emerald greens are all coming TOGETHER in single outfits and in all different fabrics! I couldn’t be happier!
Below you can see a few designers close to my heart who’s presenting it in the best ways!
I get inspired long before a new season begins, and I start to collect photographs, magazine tears, pottery and market finds to channel a feeling or mood.
This is a look that I will be grabbing on to and building outfits on as we move into fall! So stay tuned for some great ideas for all of those greens in your closet!

JC De Castelbajac, mostly famous for his rebellious designs is a multi-talent who knows his art as a painter and a live artist.
In his latest exhibition he showcases “The Ghosts of Eden” which takes place at the actual Eden Rock in St Barths.
He talks about his own “ghosts” and how he wanted to evoke the link between the ghosts of his childhood, Innocence and the friends that he’s lost along the way.
He feels closer to the invisible and the things he’s never known, and says it is all about the accident.
Jean-Charles or JC/DC as he likes to sign his work as started out early as a true artist.
Already when he was 6 years old he started drawing on pavements and walls with chalk,
and soon became very inspired by Keith Harings iconic artwork.
Keith Harings work is unnoticeably recognizable by most today with his simple yet expressive illustrations and drawings and JCs was especially fascinated by his “subway art”.
Jean Charles started off drawing angels and faces on walls himself describing it
as “friendly grafitti” all over Paris.
