THOUGHTS ON COLOR TREND & MOOD
I thought I’d try to explore some moodier colors with this board. I’ve noticed a lot of blogs & brands are using warmer colors like pink & coral. When they do opt for a cool color it’s usually mint green. I mean, who doesn’t love mint green + coral, it’s so good. But maybe it’s time to move on? As a designer it’s my job to always push boundaries and try to innovate—even with something as petty as a color palette.
The first image I came across was the washed out salmon colored flower, periwinkle gauze fabric, and saturated leaves against a stark, black background—the photo evokes such a strong mood. The salmon color isn’t far off from the bright coral that everyone’s been using, but that’s how color evolves.
What are your thoughts on color & mood this year? What colors do you think are up-trending and what color combos are you sick of seeing? Would love to hear your thoughts!
Also, can we talk about how gorgeous the minimal, sheer Vionnet 2014 Couture dress is?! So breathtaking. I know Chalayan’s inspiration was architecture for this show, but when I look at this dress I see modern romanticism. The model looks angelic. I think it fits right in with the Louvre sculpture (Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss). x
