This season's new stock is in the shops. I have my eye on a lovely blue coat that I might just treat myself to this week. As usual Pantone has waxed lyrical about the new shades which it has called The Magic of Colour.
'From love potions and the magical hour of sunset to witches and warlocks, fantasy and illusion are inspiring designers this fall season.
With an unexpected mix of darks, brights and neutrals, they cleverly manipulate reality to transport consumers to an enchanting place, free from the stresses of everyday life.'
That makes for better reading that any shade of grey!
I hope you Etsy sellers out there are changing your colour tags. I changed last season's Pink Cabaret tag to Pink Flambe and my scarf sold within a week. It really does help.
I've put together a taster of some the gorgeous pieces from Etsy to brighten up those winter days. Whether you're into darks, neutrals or brights, there's something for everyone here.
