De-Coding Gypset Colors

by 1 August 31, 2010 13 Comments

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.   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!

.

So take a look.

. . . . . My dad use to give us girls "sussies" - little un-occasioned gifts. So here is a little sussie for you - your own personal color palette. Simply print, trim, and tuck inside your handbag so when you are out shopping you can reference the perfect shade of "Shangrila".

Enjoy!
