Swiss Alps as our muse. Nature's got style.
We know. We're a little late posting our thoughts on pantone's color the year. We're huge pantone fans and wait anxiously each year for the color to be announced. This year's color is radiant orchid 18-3224, and honestly we are not enthused. In fact, we kind of hate it. However, as designers we know how to be objective. So, if we HAD to use radiant orchid(ish), here's how we'd do it:
balance a feminine shade with a masculine cut:
wear it in your hair:
make it monochromatic:
just fucking go for it:
peeple's donut farm blueberry:
blackberry lavender ice cream:
Warm things up with a fall color palette of mustard gold, reds and greens.
We wouldn't typically mix all these bold colors together at once, but we found this color combo uniquely inspiring. Use sparingly against a black or white backdrop and it works.
