This week, blog readers get an exclusive look at three essential FW19-20 colours. Seasonal darks are elevated to fashion status for FW20-21 as Black Grape provides a directional unisex alternative to classic black and navy tones. As colour palettes adapt to the transeasonal trend, sophisticated pales such as Vanilla Cream for women and Denim Sky for men bring a refreshed approach to apparel and accessories categories.
A key fashion colour for both women’s and menswear, Black Grape offers a directional alternative to classic darks. Purple-red tones are contemporised via a blackened cast while polished and glossy finishes heighten the depth of colour and enhance luxurious sensibilities. Structured handles add a crisp formality to footwear and tailored outerwear pieces.
As womenswear palettes become more transeasonal, pale shades increase in importance. The rich yellow tinted tones of Vanilla Cream are used to emphasise both the soft suppleness of leather accessories and smooth, lightweight apparel skins. Matte surfaces or finishes with a subtle lustre add to the sumptuous feel.
Denim Sky refreshes the menswear foundation palette, lifting denim blues with a brightened cast. Cooling shades lend statement appeal to accessories while retaining an elegant feel through smooth grained matte finishes. For sports footwear, grey tinted hues bring refinement and sophistication to the active arena.
