BLOSSOM - PASTELS PALETTE
Blossom features this season’s new pastel range, with both equally soft and more saturated hues. Bluebell is a favorite as the most influential pale blue. Warm pastels include petal pink and thistle purple, while frost pink and ice purple are cooler options. Yellow proves influential particularly in a creamy shade of buttermilk, as well as a more traditional daffodil hue. Aqua and orchid are offered as brighter pastels. The nude conversation evolves with peach fuzz, and dark salmon serves as a nice contrast to the lighter traditional pastel hues.
Orchid is the most saturated hue in the pastel palette. Evolving from lighter shades of lilac, orchid embraces bright purple tones.
