So, as we mentioned in yesterday’s post, the colour statement in ‘Merci’ was just gorgeous. There own label offer consisted of stunningly simple, ultra soft Indian cotton and slubby, easy jersey pieces all in a beautiful tonal palette of red, pink and coral tones. There were flashes of neutral and khaki too, but the overall impression was of this gorgeous, almost sunset feeling collection of colours. The silhouettes were all really simplistic, perfect for their theme of ‘Urban Picnic’ which seemed all about indulging in a relaxed beach holiday vibe right in the middle of the city, from cotton poplin triangle bikinis, ruched cotton mini dresses, throw on T shirt dresses and easy fit kaftan style tunics.
We hope that these shots inspire you as much as the face to face experience inspired us. We have tried our best to express the colours through pantones, but nothing quite compares to the varied base cloths, textures and finishes of the originals.
The pantone colours that we have selected to express ‘Merci’s offer are pearl (pantone 17-2601 TPX), freckle (17-1424 TPX), rouge (19-1557 TPX), burgundy (19-1726 TPX), tomato (17-1558 TPX) and apricot (13-1013 TPX).

Every action has a reaction, and in the case of fashion colour, the desire for brights is balanced by a passion for neutrals. The return to camel toned, warm and luxurious shades has been super topical since the Autumn last year, and it has not gone away. The 70’s mood has created the perfect environment for camel to live on, and in the company of such retro shades as mustard, ochre and rust. At London Fashion Week, we style spotted a little of that palette, but more so we noticed a very soft, subtle and pale neutral direction. Honey, sand, caramel and creamy shades looked chic and ultra wearable. We really love them mixed with pastels too.
