Blink Reports: November ’11 Print

We haven’t shared any of our reports with you for some time, so we thought it was well overdue for us to tout our wares to you. We’re starting our week long self indulgence with a little look at our ‘Print’ report. This is a preview from one of our five category specific reports. The other reports look at ‘Knit’, ‘Denim’, ‘Jersey’ and ‘Soft Wovens’. These all contain over 130 detailed images of whats looking good on the high street right now, plus a dash of vintage and some inspirational streetstyle. We also add pantone referenced colour palettes to every report bar ‘Denim’. This all combines to ensure that you’re perfectly updated, informed and inspired.

Blink Travels: ‘Merci’ for Colour Inspiration

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.

Colour Palettes: Softly, Softly

Sorry, its been ages since we gave you a colour palette! The inspiration was long over due, so I was delighted when we spotted this young lady in Notting Hill. I love her slightly juvenile, vintage feeling look. Looking smart, ladylike and all about making a good first impression in a ‘first day at work’ kind of way.

I love the pearly tinted grays, soft black and fresh white combination. I’m not convinced that the shoes completely work though so I’ve left the tan off of our palette. Starting on the left with carbon (pantone 18-3905 TPX), then into cold pink (13-3804 TPX), optic white, pale silver (14-4102 TPX) and iceberg (17-4111 TPX).
