A/W 2017-18 PALETTES AND TRENDS
On this autumn’s runways color is pure energy, adding a little flavor to even the most classic pieces. Combinations range from total look to rainbow look: anything is allowed to cast off winter’s greyness.
The star for the third season in a row, but livelier and more intense in the shades of Lemon Curry, spicy and exotic, Golden Olive, a tribute to greenery, color of the year 2018, and Golden Lime, tastefully acid. By Jil Sander, Hermés and Alberta Ferretti.
Camel coupled with pink to create a new tone, nude, in all its sexy shades: butter, the actual nude color, very pale and light; toast, more caramel and intense; copper tan, a mix between orange and pink, which only brunettes can pull off; and otter, which is a mud brown shade purged of green. Retro-styled outfits, light-weight fabrics and precious details: this color is very feminine, sweet, delicate and also a bit vintage….
There is Navy Peony, blueberry purple, totally detox and beneficial; Tawny Port, tannic, intensely red like a good Portuguese wine; Royal Lilac, the real purple, nearly liturgical garment-like in its most intense hues; and Primrose Pink, the typical teenage pink-lilac shade. Don’t be superstitious, purple is good luck, because it will make you look fabulous! By Christopher Kane, Mulberry and Chloè.
Or rather scarlet: royal-looking, pure elegance and sensuality, for those who love not going unnoticed. Don’t overdo it: choose soft silhouettes and precious fabrics, which highlight the color’s richness and fullness. By Chloè, Fendi and Prada.
If you’re not a huge fan of bright colors, here are two sound alternatives: the comeback of grey, an elegant and neutral color. Tailored suits, very long coats and designer dresses can be worn from September on, with still some tan left, but very elegant on fair complexions as well. By Chanel and Giambattista Valli.
