TRENDS // ECLECTIC TRENDS - EARTH COLOR TREND . 2015/16

From our FV contributor, Gudy Herder of Eclectic Trends who is based in Barcelona working as an Interior Stylist, Trend Observer and Trainer.  Her website Eclectic Trends is full of interior and trend inspirations,   http://eclectictrends.com.  

Here is her latest 2015/16 color palette trends and you can view the entire report here.

Dear Fashion Vignette readers,

Today I’d like to share with you one of my favorite color palettes for 2015/16. I did an interesting exercise the other day in my moodboard masterclass and asked my students what they would sense in one word when seeing the tactile mood board displayed on the wall. 

Their spontaneous answers were:  ancestral, organic, serene, feminine, glam, back to the roots, sienna, Marroc, tribe vibe, skin, basic, natural, sand and storm, desert, monk, tribe vibe…you see, that’s why I love this trend so much:)

Hope you enjoy it too!! 

Warm regards, 
Gudy


For 2015 the two major color forecast companies Pantone and AkzoNobel had predicted a color with a warm and natural background. Marsala on one side and Copper Orange respectively, were surprisingly close when it comes to talk earthy components.

These predictions have been evolved and we see today combined a range of terracotta, burgundy, rust, ocher, pale pink and cinnamon shades – all gathered together offering an utterly beautiful color range to use in our day-to-day life.

Toasted colors are authentic, warm, versatile and have become timeless. And if you feel you want to contrast the sometimes rather feminine touch, black is a great component to offer a stronger and more sophisticated look.




Fashion, Beauty, Interior, Jewellery, Graphic Design, Arts&Crafts and other disciplines have joined in, and today I’d love to show you a few examples. What is great about this trend is how accessible and easy to integrate it is. And that is certainly not always the case when it comes to end consumer adoption.

Not only in the fashion world but basically in a wide array of fields, we celebrate that earthy tones, which look seemingly basic, can be both fashionable and functional. The above images which belong to a beautiful ceramics collection crafted by Kristie van Noort (more on collage n#4) or the hand-woven rug from CC-Tapis are lovely examples.

Among many good reasons to go for earthy tones, the fact that this palette serves as a kind of visual cleanser among all the bolder trends seen on the runway and international trade shows makes it doubly welcome, with colors ranging from nude and moss green, terracotta to khaki, rusty and neutral tones.




Actually it’s no surprise, since we still live and love the Green Trend longing for a slower and back to the roots life with its corresponding sustainable materials, loads of plants integrated in our every day, different approach of how and where to spend our vacations, including new food habits and living a more conscious life.

In other words, with such a wide color palette, we are going to see earthy tones for a while. My prediction is this trend to last until at least until AW 2016 including new shades but staying true to its essence. These are the colors for body, mind & soul.

DESIGN COMPETITION // F.A.D. - A SENSE OF PLACE - 2016



A SENSE OF PLACE

We have never been more easily distracted. As we hustle, juggle and multitask, there is so much we don’t see.
Slow down. Tune in to where you are. Engage your eyes, your mind, your hands: observe, wonder, draw. Connect with your surroundings, and locate your own sense of place.
Say goodbye to google, and replace the virtual with the here-and-now. Put on your rose-tinted spectacles and begin a process of discovery ... find beauty in the ordinary; seek out the marvellous in the mundane.
Design a ‘mini-collection’ of two outfits, menswear or womenswear, which maps your own sense of place.
You might choose to:
• Pay attention to the sights, sounds, smells, textures and emotions in your surroundings 
• Curate a personal collection which tells the story of where you are: objects which connect and / or juxtapose
• Investigate the local: materials, techniques, topography
• Be alert to changes, evolutions, developments in familiar settings
• See usual objects or scenes with new eyes: visualise them with humour or hyperbole
• Reinvigorate craft techniques with materials which are relevant to your own context
• Find joy in the small things.
Let curiosity open the door to your imagination - discover the extraordinary and the fantastic in the everyday.

DEADLINE for initial portfolio entries: Wednesday 25th November

PRIZES 
First prize £1,000
Two runners-up £500 each
