Pantone recently revealed their Fall 2015 color palette, which consists of earthy neutrals and bold, standalone colors that balance each other and “reflect landscape of hope, fun, fantasy, and all things natural”.

These colors were evident in Fall 2015’s runway looks, featuring timeless pieces inspired from the free, bohemian vibes of the 60’s and 70’s, and the allure of the 1920’s.  The color palette is, for the first time ever, truly androgynous, and work with both men’s and women’s fashion.

Perry Ellis’ Interpretation of the color palette

 Juxtaposition of color from opposite sides of the spectrum emphasizes poise and confidence on the runway. The Fall 2015 palette is rooted in multi-faceted, androgynous colors that can be worn to portray effortless sophistication across men’s and women’s fashion; it is the first time we are seeing a truly unisex color palette.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Dolce & Gabbana

A while back, Trends & Tribulations did this post on high-end shoe designers who created their own sketches of the Cinderella shoes for the movie that came out in March.  As mentioned, those designers designed and created the actual shoes, which were then displayed at an exhibit at the Berlin Film Festival, and at Saks Fifth Avenue’s flagship store in New York City.  Five of those designers chose to sell the shoes via special order at Saks, but only Dolce & Gabbana‘s are currently being sold to the public via Luisaviaroma.
