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 might seem a bit odd that we are talking about Spring and Summer already, but in the fashion world, you always have to be thinking ahead of the trends! We wanted to share with you a sneak peek of “What’s in Store” this Spring/Summer 2013, and the below color story serves as a big part of the collection’s inspiration. You’ll find a lot of pinks in the collection, and this color story specifically serves as the inspiration for the paleness you’ll find in our Angelina Skinny in Ballet. We can’t wait to show you even more of the collection. Take a peek at some new washes on our Pinterest and we’ll slowly start adding color stories to our inspiration board too – keep your eye out!
Last year, when we first introduced the color vermilion to our collections, we explained its origin and our fascination with its ancient history. And this year, vermilion made its way once again into our collection on our Amalia Skinny jean. Although we adore the color by itself, we brought back the wash on our Amalia Skinny as it played a part in this color story below. We pulled the vermilion color from the glowing poppy’s, and we created our Amalia Skinny in Licorice from the darker shades in this landscape. Many times we look at washes alone, but it’s always fun to see how they play a part in the collection’s color palette!
