Confetti print, sophisticated femininity.
First impressions are an autumnal palette in a soft, floaty dress. A scattered patchwork combining ochre, soft khaki and creamy white. Upon close inspection the different tones of these 3, happy together, colours are generated by the patterns making them varying intensities of the same colour. All 3 colours play at being the foreground and background. A really clever design.
The combination of repetitive flower petals and leaves morphing into mini organic painterly dots, in the 3 colours, means the limited palette hangs perfectly together whilst also being far more “interesting” than solid colours, and at the same time reinforcing the autumn feel theme.
There is a freshness and lightness, thanks to the inclusion of the creamy white, whilst offering up an autumnal palette.
There is something special about the light refraction on satin fabrics – the multitude of tones as the light catches the different directions of the fabric weave allows for a depth of colour that seems supernatural.
A perfect palette for Autumn – Ochre and Khaki are the perfect pair to get in the mood for the much-anticipated cooling off, after a long hot summer; before we’re looking for cosy winter solutions.
A soft and sophisticated tone of khaki that sits with most colours – whether it’s other neutrals or contrast “complementary” colours in the ochre, fuchsia or purple tones.
The Khaki is what I call “colourless” – it’s only just looking khaki – not too bright. The lustre of the satin creates multiple tones of itself – letting it then pair with almost any colour.
This amazing linen fabric has to be seen to truly appreciate the tones of colours creating a texture and depth that looks more like linen – than linen!?
So, keep it simple and commune with the best of the retro 60’s and you’re guaranteed to achieve sophisticated elegance.
