Fall/Winter 2013/14 Color Theme: Harvest Past and Reworked Classics
According to Carol Meek, Publisher of Color Portfolio, the key phrase of the season is “Harvested Past and Reworked Classics.” Color for Fall/Winter 2013-14 is being influenced by the Countryside, Vintage and Traditional themes.
The new fall/winter season continues to be influenced by nature, so color is natural without artificial casts. Color also has vintage tones that while slightly worn or washed, still hold a lot of saturation. Traditional shades are still continuing this season; while the trends are still Classic they are being re-worked into exciting new color stories.
Just like the trends, color is re-interpreted to look new and inspiring with interesting and creative color combinations. The natural brown story continues from Spring/Summer 2013 into Autumn/Winter 2013-14. Grey tones add a touch of rugged elegance and are similar to mechanical greys. The Browns are very strong and work well when mixing them with spicy tones and deep wine/berry shades. Blue/Greens look appealing this year as well, especially when shown in combination with traditional greens.
