Colour Trends S/S19


In harmony with nature and sustainable: warm, sunny shades of yellow and orange as well as subtle green tones and brown come to the fore. Millefleurs, embossed materials, worn or embellished with patina are typical, as are raffia, bast fibres and straw.


The sumptuous life of the “always-on world”: A spectrum that plays with eye-catching, bold colours and psychedelic, technical effects. Intense blues and greens stand in contrast to strong red, pink and violet tones.


Stunning looks with a little understatement: feminine and subtle on the one hand, modern and cool on the other. The play with light and shadow is typical. White, black and ink blue are complemented by light essentials of the cream/grey/nude colour scale.
