SS15 COLORCAST “STRONG ACCENTS”

Image

Welcome to our last color forecast for this season. We would like to say that we saved the best for last, but I love all of the seasons combinations equally and It just happen to go from light to dark this time.

These colours are more saturated but in a grey cast so they are cold, and therefore will look really great in our spring outerwear and leather goods and accessories. Even the pink has a grey tone to it which makes it more sophisticated and settle than a lot of neon pink you usually see for the spring seasons. Last season Blues were yellow casted and loud, now they have become more toned down and somber for SS15, which is something I have always preferred when styling, mostly because I don’t like too much contrast. Even though this color palette seem very dark for spring it all makes sense when you look at the runway and the couture shows where we get our main inspiration from. I will link back to this color series when I write our accessories report!

Stay tuned! Re.

SS15 COLOR PALETTE “TEAL & RUST “

Image

We are now on the third out of Four series of color charts for spring/summer 2015 and  you can start to see where darker shades are starting to go.
The three most dominant colours are the teal blue’s in this chart but they are all in different “cast” from each other. The casts of the colours are divided into the major three mixing colours: yellow, red, blue and grey. It indicates that if a blue is “yellow casted” it will have more green character and fall under the “teal” family of blues, and so will the grey casted if they are light enough to change color without turning to dark and then fall under “saturated” hues.
The grey pantone plays a big part as a “blue” casted grey and a “shade” (a no-colour) in layering pieces and in a lot of stripes. But since grey is a pretty “safe” shade it will be seen mostly in solids.
The red’s and brown’s in this family are the “warm” colours of the chart and they are both yellow casted. These will become essential for this season in a lot of embellishments and embroideries and will most definitely make great prints. We have already seen some amazing pieces on the runways to inspire us for our spring vacations, events and weddings for the summer months!
Enjoy our third direction for spring!

The earthy rusty tones in this chart are emphasised in fabrics like plush velvets, silk, chiffon  and linens for this season. There are several shades of rusty and plum reds and some are presented in iridescent fabrics, however I firmly believe we will see this combination of reds in dramatic prints and layers this season.

SS15 PASTEL ACCENT COLORS

Image

Welcome to the second part of the mini-series of our color chart!
This selection is a continuation of the previous chart we made with dreamy pastels and foggy shades with some important accent hues.
The lilac’s and baby blue’s will likely been seen with the yellows and golds thus emphasis is mainly on the 70’s look this season. The grey-casted mint green has been seen both in print and solids in this seasons resort collections and will have a great impact on the summer and transition months as well.
Another important element in this chart, is the gold hues we will likely be seeing a lot of this spring. You could already see tendencies of gold in some resort collections and previous fall couture pieces in shimmery platinums and lame’ threads to inspire the next coming collection.
We are looking forward to seeing how this trend will transpire into the streets of LA when we hit the warmer months.

PINK AND GREEN COLOR COMBO

10636330_865793096786733_5615111572795197627_n  This cold and dusky month on November, we have let ourselves get inspired by the vibrant and colourful fashions of the 80s that are coming up for this spring. I wanted to be bold for my own interpretation of this look by mixing two shades of fuchsia and a teal green. 
When playing around with colors like this, I always like to make sure that one color is slightly more somber (toned down) than the one you combine it with. You don’t want to look like you are trying to stop traffic or glow in the dark, just making a fashion statement or that you are rolling with the trendsetters out there!
I was also widely inspired by street looks from the fashion weeks of Milan and Paris.

COLOR FORECAST ALERT FOR SS15; RED & NUDE

10609546_862103087155734_409853248828783733_n
One of the most interesting color combinations for this up coming spring season is, in my opinion the red and nude color block. I have never really worn red well, however mixed with a warm nude hue I can totally see myself putting something like this together next year!

What I have seen on the runways is very adaptable this time with light weight flowy fabrics and well-constructed shapes. Some more deconstructed than others but very easy pieces to find in our beloved high-street boutiques.wedding_nail_polish_ideas__spring_2015_neutral_nude_nail_colors_neutral_nail_color_tumblr_n6nvfwpdid1qa7p1yo1_500a23_3040164aJILLSTUART jill-stuart-spring-2015-nyfw-5Matthew-Williamson-LFW-Spring-2015-nude-blouse-coral-silk-skirt DOL_0335 DOL_03211091437Converted to the streets… Street Style - Paris Collections: WOMEN SS15 - September 23 To September 01 October, 2014 1 (1) Golestaneh-by-STYLEDUMONDE-Street-Style-Fashion-Blog_MG_8612-700x1050hbz-mfw-ss2015-street-style-day1-13-lgconnnietang-Connie-Tang-fashion-blog-style-blogger-sydney-australia-the-star-casino-marquee-lady-luck-red-lace-dress-lulus-stefani-necklace-outrage-fashion-crochet-dress-inpink-pink-box-clutch-nordstrom-valentino-rockstuf-t-strap-pump-nordstrom-
