{January 22, 2010}   The Fashion Colours of 2010?

We’ve been thinking about what colours are going be influential over the course of 2010.

Our usual port of call when looking forwards in this sense is Fashion Trendsetter, as they always seem to be accurate  regards to what colours are going to be shaping and influencing the months ahead.

For Spring/Summer 2010 they have four looks highlighted:

  1. Southern Folk: “Blazing red and deep violet blend with more neutral shades evoking dry, South American landscapes: “ochres, clays, beiges, cactus greens.
  2. Popular Appeal: “vintage patterns and faded 60’s and 70’s Americans colors
  3. Ode to nature: “Chalky, light, faded, powder and talcum colors are accompanied by more intense shades of taupe beige and mauve.
  4. Light Tech: “green, pink, turquoise, yellow and acidic orange……with greyed tints

Another influence on the colour trends of any season is the Pantene colour report. This year the collection of esteemed designers are highlighting red, coral and violet shades, along with muted beige, taupe and green. Turquoise seems to be featuring most prominently this season.


Turquoise features heavily in the Pantene report for 2010

Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®:

“Now more than ever, women are vigilant when it comes to spending, Instead of reinventing their wardrobe at the start of each season, consumers want pieces to complement what they already own. Pairing a bold color with a basic piece or freshening up their look with bright accents addresses the need for practicality, as well as fun.”

We could’t have put it better oureselves.
