A spicy shade of Cayenne combines brown with an orange tint, updating the staple shade with an autumnal Fashion Colour twist. A perfect shade for the fall wardrobe, Cayenne injects women’s styles with an alluring warmth and commercial appeal. In casual wear this color adds a laidback look to pieces like utility coats at Opening Ceremony and manipulated dresses at Proenza Schouler, while sportswear inspires contrast trim at Lacoste and slogan scarves by Marc by Marc Jacobs.
