It’s a little while since we shared some pure colour inspiration with you, but we have something particularly beautiful to make up for it. From vintage shots to fresh from NYFW catwalks we have a thing for this rosey, blushy selection of colours. It has been recurring across our Pinterest feed for a while, popping up in various levels, on various fabrications, for Spring/Summer and for Autumn/Winter.
To dig a little deeper than the ‘it’s pretty and we like it’ statement, this looks like the natural progression for all of those nude/make-up shades we have all been in love with for a few seasons. Team that colour level with the strong Seventies vibe. Blend those influences with the broader feeling for redefining feminism/femininity in a wonderfully fresh and modern way. The result, we think, is this sophisticatedly female colour level.
Pantone, we salute you and your choice of marsala as the shade for 2015. Although for us the name’ marsala’ doesn’t quite give this family of reddy, peachy, fleshy tints the sensual name it deserves. For us, we think ‘nipple’ would be a better name. Or maybe ‘well snogged lip’. Or how about ‘first flush of passion’? You get our drift? These colours are damn well sexy!
