Whoa. Hold the phone. It's fall! When did it start getting dark early? I wasn't ready for summer to be over. [caption id="attachment_3614" align="alignleft" width="300"] 90's Grunge Mom Jeans - Herb Green by Honey Moon Muse[/caption] Looking back, it was a whirlwind of a summer, burning the candle on both ends, more often than not. I invested a great deal of time and energy into LanaBetty this summer and I can tell you with absolute certainty that it is starting to pay off. We are scheduled for 6 full weekends of markets as we lead into the holiday season, we have expanded into four new shops, both online and in-store, and online sales continue to grow. As the seasons change, so too must our wardrobe. I do my best to predict the color trends, but I often put my trust in greater powers, such as Pantone. From the very wise Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute:
Juxtaposition of color from opposite sides of the spectrum emphasizes poise and confidence on the runway. The Fall 2015 palette is rooted in multi-faceted, androgynous colors that can be worn to portray effortless sophistication across men’s and women’s fashion; it is the first time we are seeing a truly unisex color palette.[caption id="attachment_3615" align="alignleft" width="300"] Original Watercolor Landscape Painting by Ireart (Italy)[/caption] An olive green once thought of as strictly safari or military, Dried Herb is elevated this season to be sophisticated and chic. Closely related to nature, Dried Herb is an organic shade redolent of nature’s earthy fragrances. Interesting on its own and a wonderful contrast to other hues, Marsala (color of the year) is a winey red-brown that adds finesse and savoir faire to the palette. Rich and robust, Marsala incorporates the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness.
