Beautifully muted natural tones of ecru and winter creams are key for the season. Using tone on tone palettes with winter textures such as faux furs, feathers, lace and wool bring this key colour direction to life. Frosted metallic add that glitter and glam for a subtle wedding feel.

Chilled Ecru - Inspirational palette

The white on white trend can sometimes look a little stark, but by adding in depth of colour with further neutral tones of grey browns and a flash of gold this can be an elegant and sophisticated palette for Winter. The use of warm fabrics such as faux furs, tweeds, wools in addition to lace and tulle brings texture.

The soft tones of blush pinks with dusky blues continue for AW17-18. This is an update from our SS17 Minerals inspirational palette as a key trend for the season. The key difference is that the highlights are now more saturated and the metallics less muted. Richness comes through in the use of sheen on blush tones, texture from faux fur and embroideries.
