Named the color of 2014 by Pantone, Radiant Orchid plays to the current predilection for pastel with a nod to purple’s regal symbolism. We like how the muted take on the rich color—usually associated with royals and mystics—updates navy, camel and other more traditional staples with a softer hue. Seeing it in ice cream, hair and nature even inspired our “Calm” wash, currently available in Eve Hi Rise Skinny from Amazon and Chicago boutique Perchance.
It’s the first day of spring, and what better way to celebrate than wearing bright spring colors?! Pink is synonymous with spring, and we have a fabulous new style and pink wash this season, the Grace skinny in Dazzling. It’s a cropped fit, perfect for casual spring and summer outfits, or you can even dress it up with a great pair of heels. The “dazzling” shade was inspired by several tones of pink – from hot pink to a more salmon-y pink – take a look below at some of our photo inspirations for the new color.

What color is sure to always make a statement? Red. From our earliest Alice in Vermillion that got us hooked on how the color pops on denim to one of our new fall favorites Amalia in Vermillion, we think that the brilliant red orange color vermillion denim is the perfect combination of statement and class. In its naturally occurring form, vermilion is actually mercuric sulfide, a toxic compound also known as “cinnabar,” luckily for us the dyes and paints of today are non-toxic. Take a look back and read about the origins of the eye catching color.
As our design team continued to experiment with and discover new shades of red, it resulted in one of our summer favorites Almas Hi Rise Skinny in Acid Red and this fall’s stunning Alice Skinny in Devil Red. We continue to create and come up with new combinations of red denim; ever wonder where our design team finds inspiration for all of these different shades of red? Take a look at our Pinterest page for an in-depth look at our design team’s “Color Inspiration: Red” board.
Last fall we saw Acid Yellow trending in all the Spring 2012 lines at the Paris and London Fashion Weeks. This spring, we have our own unique take on the Yellow trend. Our mid-range acid yellow-dyed denim falls somewhere between a pastel and gold, creating a beautiful wash we like to call “Tapestry.” We absolutely adore how this resilient tone has taken on a strong presence in so many spring looks. In the May issue of InStyle, our Tapestry Almas Zip Skinny’s were cleverly paired with a sleepwear top for a cool casual look.
The best thing about the color Yellow is that not only is it a spring favorite, but Yellow absolutely calls out summer too! As Spring 2012 storms in and summer quickly approaches, we wanted to share some of our favorite Yellow color inspirations for the coming seasons.
