Here is her latest S/S 2015 color trend and you can view the entire report here.
Dear Fashion Vignette readers, it’s Gudy again from Eclectic Trends, and I like to share a pretty ‘sweet’ post with you today. For all of you who might have thought, pastel colors are dated, please see a few impressions and predictions on how pastels have evolved now. They are featured both in a more vivid way or get really chalky but pastels are definitely not disappearing but rather get slightly more ‘mature’. Would love to hear your thoughts! Warmly, Gudy
The main difference is two new colors which are geranium and lavender (the corresponding Pantone codes are linked) you see in this first grid(#3 and #5).
This color trend has been eventually called Soft Pop and is forecasted with similar images for S/S 2016 by other great experts such as WGSN. I do see the candy colors already for this year and believe they are still actual next summer with probably a slight move towards more vivid tones. This season they are still pretty chalky (if you search for a nice chalk paint brand, try Auténtico - the color palette is really beautiful) and often muted.
Pastel colors used to be applied to rather playful designs often with a touch of humor or even created with a pretty kitsch approach. But the change towards a much more sophisticated design is probably the major novelty here.
What is really huge are pastel hair braids, wigs and anything around pastel-colored hair.
Pale pink is the one that stays fresh every single year and has been adopted to men collections too. We start seeing a transformation towards unisex colors meaning there is no specific lady or gentleman color but both gender openly share. Well, this is what we observe on some fashion shows but we might still have a lengthy path ahead of us to make that a reality. Thoughts? G, x
