Dark and alluring, directional shades of Black Wash and Crimson surface on the Spring/Summer 2015 runways, saturating new season womenswear styles with a fashion-forward feel. Trendstops colour experts have picked out these two shades out of the 40 compiled in Trendstop Colour on the Catwalks S/S15 report, demonstrating how both colours can be adapted into apparel and accessory design as a sophisticated alternative to the spring seasons conventional pastels.
Come over the dark side with S/S15's Black Wash, which lends a downtown attitude to formal pieces. A key shade emerging in New York collections, feminine utility apparel takes on a refined finish, while silky fabrics lend a luxe appeal to chic headwear or Eastern-inspired jackets. A play on texture adds interest, from dramatic fringing to lacy trim.
On the London catwalks, rich Crimson adds a touch of upscale glamour to summertime styles with a darkened red tint. We see leather materials work well on sporty jackets with tonal racing stripe placements. For evening, look to delicate pleated layering in sheer fabrications, or shiny snakeskin for a more youthful look on clutch accessories.
