A/W16: The 10 Shades for Autumn


*Insert speakerphone* Calling all fashion junkies. The most important and favourite month on the fashion calendar has arrived! 
With a month of endless catwalk shows, trends and updates for SS17, what better way than to dedicate this post to one of the main and one of my personal favourite areas which set the scene for fashion trends each season - Colour Analysis and Prediction for this autumn/winter. 

Even though we are on our way to the end of the year. I thought I'd begin by introducing, or reminding some, of the chosen Colour of the Year by industry leader Pantone: Serenity and Rose Quartz. With everyday stresses becoming evermore prominent in the western world, the popularity of wellness and mindfulness grows with it. Influenced by the need for calmness and relief, Executive Director of Pantone Leatrice Eiseman describes the combination of these tones: "Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and pace."

Acting as the base to this season's colour palette, the colour of the year, leads us nicely on to the curated colours for A/W16. "Transcending gender, these unexpectedly vivacious colours in our Fall 2016 palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical fall shades." The underlying tones of Rose Quartz and Serenity, added with grey, red and mustard yellow intertwines peacefulness with warmth, confidence and a 'touch of the exotic'.

See below a selection of pieces that I have picked out which incorporate this exciting seasonal palette with some of the upcoming trends - velvet, nightwear as day wear and glamorous grunge.
