GREY & CREAM

Image

The reason why I chose grey and cream for this weeks outfit inspiration is mainly because of how great these shades go together. Nudes combined with light shades (the grey scale from white to black) go very well together without the contrast from black or colours, and therefore it is easy to put something together! I like to combine different rich materials such as Mohair and cashmere or wool and alpaca together for an organic look and feel. Layer these fibres with a cotton t-shirt and/or denim and throw in some leather details for complete the look. Stay tuned for my own version of this look!

CURRENT TRENDS – RUNWAY TO STREET: THE PANTONE COLORS

Image

Every season, colour systems powerhouse Pantone release a colour report for the fashion industry. It contains 2 sets of 10 colours, one for women and one for men inspired by everything from books, artisan crafts, photography and retro architecture, to exotic landscapes and the children of rock legends. This season brings out some untypical and somewhat unrealistic colours that are unusual for fall and open up a lot of room for playfulness and artistic expression. We see it represented quite clearly in many of the fun ways designers have put hand painted fabrics and powerful mixes of colour in their shows. This week we’ve chosen to wrap our reader favourite post “Runway to Street” around these colours to give you some expanded insight to how you can mix and match some hot new colours with the most classic of your fall accessories.

First, some colours from this years Pantone map (Black not included).

Then 3 outfits that express what different designers, all at the cutting edge of fashion have chosen to do with these colours. Balenciaga brings a strong, city chic colour combo of Vibrant Orange, Royal Blue and deeper take on Cadmium Green. Peter Pilotto puts forward his skilful patterns in Purple Orchid, Molten Lava and classic black while Alice + Olivia take the fairytale route with patterns in another version of Cadmium Green,  Saphire Blue and Misty Yellow (not represented here).

In the last picture we’ve given you 3 ways of using these combinations in every day life, such as to the office or a friday night out. It show’s its not hard to dare some colour and how coats and jackets in colours other than black can be a major investment hit for this season. It also shows a brilliant way of bringing new life to black knits and boots with something as simple as a pair of pink pants or a yellow tank top.

CURRENT TRENTS – RUNWAY TO STREET

Image

Fall has finally come to Los Angeles, and we’re super excited to see it! Temperatures are falling and we can put our jean cut-offs to rest in the back of our closets. Its time to bring out the trusted wool blends, full lengths, knits and booties. This surprisingly often also means blacks, browns, blues and camels as fall and winter pieces are more on the expensive side and who would spend $500 on a bright pink cashmere knit? Luckily we’re here to help you blend up that darkness with one of our favourite colours for fall / winter 2014. Red. In classic burgundy or new and interesting cranberry. It never fails. Every so classy paired with all kinds of transition pieces like a sheer skirt or Mary Jane flats, floral t-shirts and prints. And when the real cold rolls in, it goes beautifully with classic knits you already have in grey, black and camel. To spice it up, pair successfully with all kinds of circus like patterns, metallics and especially black & white stripes. Its so interesting and ever evolving that we’re considering letting it become one of the new staples in our closet. Who doesn’t like red? Its the colour of love, and it is here to stay. Just as we like it at RE.
