The weather cautions Autumn as it trickles down the Dot2Dot Branding office windows today. It forecasted sunshine, however, Vladimir Nabokov taught us not to be angry with the rain, as it simply doesn’t know how to fall upwards. A positive approach to the fall in the weather must be assumed, so we decided to explore the colour trends that are emerging for your Autumn/Winter 2015 collections.
This season displays a knit of neutral, achromatic tones punctured with bold colour statements that reflect the vivid moorland tones surrounding the Dot2Dot office. For the first time we are seeing a truly unisex colour trend, with a string of colours that are innately wearable for both men and women, and this collision of tones results in an androgynous, sophisticated and wearable palette, that will carry any collection to distinguished accomplishment.
The importance of neutrals continues to evolve throughout the season, with Pantones such as Desert Sage and Stormy Weather allowing designers to create unobtrusive and timeless pieces. A combination of luxurious fabrics in knits and leather, and organic tones envelopes us in the secure arms of nature. Deep, dusky blues will add intrigue and replace harsh black tones, yet your AW palette does not end on a neutral note…
Inspired by the flora of Autumn, and seen in Versace and Armani AW15 collections, layering heather purples and Pantones such as Cashmere Rose result in an optimistic and bold interpretation of the season, that is enchanting for both male and female lines. It becomes apparent that this season all encompasses delicate beauty with splashes of playfulness, yet is undefined by gender.
