Winter does have charms. It’s great for drinking a glass of red in front of the fire, going for a drive in the country or cosying up to watch a movie but I’ll admit it, I LOVE Spring!
The blossoms are out, the sky is blue. Spring is just around the corner.
Bright and lively, this year’s Spring colours are inspired by warm sunny days, pure, fresh mountain air and crystal, clear waters.
According to Laurie Pressman, the Vice-President of the Pantone Color Institute, the colours of Spring 2017 are “A Mixture of Vitality, Relaxation and the Great Outdoors”.
Designers at the last New York Fashion Week focussed on using colours in playful ways combining them thoughtfully to capture the hope and transformation of Spring.
It seems that everyone’s celebrating. Today woman came into the shop holding a bunch of leaves she’d picked on her lunchtime walk. She said she was feeling happy and festive in the warm weather.
