Our #colouroftheweek is Chilled Blue. Another week another city, we’re seeing some exciting colour emerging from #LFW. Alongside all the warm brights, we’re liking the new level of winter pastels, continuing the trend from spring/summer 2014.

Our #colouroftheweek is Cyan blue. Seen on the autumn/winter 2014/15 catwalks and at the spring/summer 2015 fabric shows, Cyan looks poised to join Cobalt, as a future trend for layered blues rather than singular statement pops emerges.

Our #colouroftheweek is Peach Sorbet. Loving the trend forward men we saw at Pitti Uomo this season. Several were already sporting orange, indicating it has the potential of being adopted more commercially in S/S 15 and beyond.
