This week, Trendstop blog readers get an exclusive insight into which three essential colour trends from our Spring Summer 2017 forecast will have longevity for the following season. Burnt Rouge, Springtime Chartreuse and Toasted Toffee have been selected from the Earthy Spices palette; an organic palette which nods towards both retro and militant aesthetics. These rusted classic shades compliment dense wovens with a dry handle, expressing a raw aesthetic.
Rouge red is treated with a burnt brown cast for a rich, rusted effect. Glossy leathers are enhanced with a luxe appeal, while woven tees and tinted eyewear express a retro dimension. White contrasts add cleanness.

Punchy chartreuse is toned down with a fresh, spring green softness, offering a new shade for utility wear. Casual applications dominate, ranging from supple suede and durable wovens to jersey and technical padding. Crochet injects a vintage femme element.

A warm, sweetened caramel colour adds richness to menswear, as well as a sense of 70’s retro. Suede and leather handles express a feel of classic masculinity, while white blocking injects a modern sportive contrast.
