Contrary to the typical spring palette, the one color that keeps reappearing over and over is BROWN. Making a strong statement in every 70’s inspired look, and there are lots of them, it has also crossed over as the accent color for just about every outfit…including those taking a pass on the retro wave. For example, MICHAEL KORS, CÉLINE and THE ROW paired brown accessories in its many variations with classic tonal dressing without the slightest hint of 70’s style. A natural with denim, I like how it grounds muted neutrals (KORS) and adds a less predictable character with head to toe black (CÉLINE). Good news too…shades of brown will be sticking around for awhile with a strong showing in the Pre-Fall ’15 collections.
