A gorgeously luscios color board from the talented Alina Lebedeva. Darks indido-y blues mixed with mauves are just incredible, aren’t they?!

Color Series | 229 | Laspata/DeCaro re-post

January 18th, 2013

I’m re-posting a photo from Laspata/Decaro of this fabulous Oscar De la Renta from last February. It’s such a great image showing this year’s emerald mixed with retro green-yellow hues. The green-yellows have a very 1950’s mid-century vibe to them, but the print is anything but that. In fashion, it’s all about being able to take the old and re-mix it to create the new.

Color Series | 228 | Dsquared2

January 11th, 2013

I love seeing emerald combined with other neutrals like black & white or grey & white. It’s preppy without being stuffy. It’s fresh and upbeat. It’s energetic and eye-opening.

This photo shows how a velvet emerald blazer, when paired with classic trousers and a white button down shirt, creates a timeless look that get an update with this year’s color.

Color Series | 227 | Erik Madigan Heck |

Happy 2013!

I wanted to start off this new year with a series of color boards dedicated to the color emerald! Pantone is naming color #17-5641 the color of the year. You’ll be seeing it everywhere in fashion and in interiors. Some of you have already seen it on the red carpet in gowns, accessories, and jewelry. Emerald is a rich color that connotes elegance, mystery, and beauty. Dorothy sought the Emerald City in The Wizard of Oz and Cleopatra was well known for being an admirer of emeralds.

Gems are always a great inspiration for color. Following along with emerald, you’ll be seeing other greens such as jade and peridot becoming more popular this year. I love combining citrine, brass, or gold accents with emerald. The tones play well off of each other and gives a richness to emerald that makes it so alluring.
