Pantone has just released their Spring/Summer 2015 colour collection with the inspiration of this season’s colours coming straight from Mother Nature herself – and we love it! Soft cool hues blended together with subtle warm tones that inspire us to take a step back, breath in and just relax from the bustle and business of life.
Gone are the bright and bold and in its place are the dreamy colours of Aquamarine, Lavender Herb, Toasted Almond, Glacier Grey and Strawberry Ice, just to name a few!
It is the perfect summer colour palette bringing to mind images of picnics in the woods, surf, sand and ice cream cones – and just like ice cream flavours there’s a colour to suit every taste and every skin tone.
Wondering how to incorporate this seasons colours into your summer wardrobe for upcoming parties and weddings? We’ve looked through our Collection to give you a few ideas.
The lead colour in this gorgeous array is the dreamy Aquamarine. Cool and calming it conjures up a vision of the wide expansive cooling ocean – ideal for our summer days.
It is a stunning colour choice for a summer beach wedding, or any wedding for that matter, and perfect for a feminine design like our Mozelle Hanni. The flattering sweetheart neckline and long floating skirt is ideal for different body shapes and both long and short hairstyles, also giving you the opportunity to accentuate the dress further with statement jewellery accessories.
Looking for a classic formal look? Whether it is for a bridesmaid dress or other formal occasion nothing beats the timeless beauty of classic grey. Quietly confident this colour stands alone for a formal occasion or it can be the beautiful backdrop for a pure white bride.
Our Diva Hanni is the perfect outfit if you’re a fan of Pantone’s Glacier Gray. The wider straps on the neckline give great support for the bustier figure yet the detailing also serves to draw attention away from the smaller bust.
If you secretly love your bright colours but don’t want to stand out with something too bright, a concession may be to combine this seasons colours in one dress. Our Swains Reef design is ideal. While it incorporates cool shades, it is vibrant enough to make a splash of colour without screaming out too loudly.
If you have a preference for the shorter style our Nude Champagne silk chiffon dress is ideal. This gorgeous floaty dress incorporates the colours Sandstone with a touch of Roasted Almond. This versatile dress, ideal for any occasion, has the added benefit of half-length sleeves allowing you to get more wear out of it in between seasons.
A Vintage Creation
If your planning a vintage style wedding or beach resort style wedding, may we suggest the Southern Aurora design for your special occasion. It combines the new seasons colour tones of Lavender Herb and Toasted Almond. This silk dupion creation has sequined details at the bodice with a silk georgette draped bow at the front. Not in the wedding party? Don’t worry; this dress will suit as a wedding guest outfit too.
With one of the above outfits, you wont go wrong incorporating this seasons gorgeous colours and tones. So get out there ladies, spring into summer and enjoy yourself with the calming beauty of nature’s wonderful hues!
