De-Coding Gypset Colors
Posted on 31 August 2010
The truth is - I must beg your pardon.
The 'September Issue' has dropped.
Fall goods are in the stores.
DDR has already sold through several styles...
but I haven't de-coded fall's color palette for you yet!
So here it is.... Building off of Julia Chaplin's inspirational book, Gypset Style, (see earlier post) I wanted the fall palette to be an innovative take on fundamental basics, but also wanted the colors to transport us and 'gypset' us around the world. I wanted the colors to conjure images of travel and adventure - rather real or imagined. Colors with names like: Shangrila Green, Manchurian Orange, and Chinese Lantern evoke strong images from the East, while colors named Arabian Red, Kashmir, and Turkish Tobacco conjure up hues from the Middle East.Â Â Heaven, Champagne and Basic Black are also adventurous and anything but "basic". .. .
As always, one can never do justice to color by talking or writing about it - after all, color is COLOR!
