S/S 19 Colour Direction

The Spring/Summer season is here and has hit the fashion world with striking new styles and colours. We have the essential Colour guide to getting this seasons on trend colour ways.

From tonal and pastel’s, to sophisticated neutrals, what colour will you choose to accompany you this upcoming season?

Core Colours 

The continued trend for natural materials such as raffia, together with the wealth of neutrals seen on the S/S 18 catwalks, confirms the continued importance of fashion neutrals. Buttercream evolves the trend for white leather items, with a commercial warmth. Wood Smoke heralds the return of darker brown tones; Wild Aubergine hints at the growing relevance of purple hues.


Uptrending on the streets, true navy remains a must-have alternative to black for transseasonal assortments, bringing a sense of luxury and sophistication to leather bags and footwear. Add statement hardware and embellishments or experiment with tonal texture-blocking to further elevate this chic tone. 


Featured Tones 

The earthy nature of Amber Ash bridges the Core and Fashion palettes for leather items, its warmth emanating a dreamy sense of nostalgia that complements the renewed relevance of bohemian references for S/S 19. Acting as an unexpected pairing or as a standout statement colour, Cooled Turquoise was championed by key influencers on the S/S 18 catwalks and will gather pace into S/S 19.  


The S/S 18 trend for pastel purples evolves and intensifies with the emergence of punchy Frosted Lavender. Oyster Pink bridges into fashion neutrals territory, emerging as a key direction for eyewear, while Powdered Blue completes this youthful fashion palette, offering a more directional alternative to the proven commerciality of pinks and purples for summer-transitional footwear and accessories 



Metallic Bronze brings an element of luxury to the Common Ground palette, its warmth channelling an antique look and feel that plays into the renewed interest in vintage items. Use matte finishes, seen trending across jewellery, hardware and leathers, to emphasise the timeworn appeal of bronze gold.  


A wealth of greens were seen on the S/S 18 catwalks – and Ivy Green is confirmed as a key accent colour for S/S 19. Complementing the military greens that appear in the Creative Manifesto core palette, this shade has a sportif feel that works well on casual summer items. For jewellery, green taps into the growing trend for brightly coloured stones.
