As part of a continuing series I’m focusing on the color trends from Fashion Snoop for Fall/Winter/2010/2011. In my last post I discussed the “Hitchcock” palette – lots of gorgeous neutrals. Today I present you with their other palette, Renaissance. According the Fashion Snoop this color palette and key items represent the translation of “combating a rough economy with a warrior-like aesthetic.” Look for hints of Joan of Arc as well as Robin Hood in fashion influence. This translates to lots of metal, fur, leather and chainmaille. This forecast is much welcome to me; I love the softness of romance mixed with toughness and strength.
I adore the richness of this palette, neutrals balanced with dreamy jewel tones. My favorite color from this is Pantone 18-1648 or “Baked Apple”. Not pink, not red – a gorgeous blend and the best of both. It reminds me of rosy cheeks after a chilly winter walk. Below I’ve hand picked some Etsians with this gorgeous Baked Apple worked into their collections.
