pantone colours: warm sand
As it is currently the summer season here in the Southern Hemisphere, I still take for inspiration on what has been showcased for the spring runways. Warm sand is a colour I loved from the spring season’s Pantone colours. The warm neutral tone is set as an essential that can be used as a base colour to this spring season’s colours. As well as bringing forth a sense of calmness to this spring season. Many designers have been seen incorporating the warm sand colour to showcase in their collection for the season.
The warm sand colour was spotted during the Jacquemus spring/summer 2018 show, the whole concept behind the collection was so effortlessly beautiful, the collection was inspired by an old photograph of the designers mother walking through the port one summer. And memories of being raised in a village outside of Marseilles. Bringing in visions of nostalgia, the sea, the sun and South of France. Which you can see how the warm sand colour fits perfectly with the inspiration.
Alberta Ferratti spring collection showcased shimmering pinks, nudes and a more minimalistic take on ethereal glamour, though feathers still remain. The outfit shown in the image shows the warm sand colour peaking through the collection. This outfit was actually the one I found the most breathtaking as the feather embellishments made the model(Blanca) appear as a walking swan goddess.
For max mara’s spring collection tailored silhouettes and minimalistic styles were focused. Amongst the collection the warm sand tone was featured quite frequently during the runway. The outfit the model is wearing in the image was one of my chosen favourites, the modernised fringing flows effortlessly along the runway giving off an aesthetically pleasing look.
Warm sand was also seen during Tony Ward’s collection in the couture gown featuring linear embroideries. The warm sand colour being able to give off a sense of charm in this design. Show casing the representation of what Tony Ward’s collections are about a tribute to women and their femininity, with the taste and distinctive charm of a timeless style.
