Fashion Week: Bold Color Undercover

Thursday, September 06, 2007 • Permalink • 

We're only two days into New York Fashion Week, but the Spring 2008 color palette seems to be taking shape nicely. Muted tones of grey, blush pink, beige, and clear yellow are the shades of choice. Just take a look at the BCBG or Lela Rose runways for proof of this precious spring color scheme. Our spring color story is set, right? Or is it...

On closer inspection there seems to be an undercover color trend slowly building. While the majority of shows showed a majority of their looks in the expected pale tones, patches of color did break through. Not enough in any one show to cause a stir, mind you. But, by examining the shows as a whole, it's easy to see that wide strokes of bright color across a neutral background is destined to be the underdog trend of the season. Don't put those bold colors away yet, ladies. I think spring has more in store for us than beige and blush.
