Rosewood’s warming pink-red tones and the deep smoky hues of Charcoal Slate inform kidswear’s core autumnal palette while Tuscan Teal makes a splash with vibrant blue-greens tones that refresh classic winter colour-ways.



Autumnal reddened tones echo the warmth of natural wood. Deep red shades come with rosy undertones and subtle pink hues for an added depth of colour. Enriching cosy winter outerwear and shaggy knits, Rosewood reds also make a statement as a base for winter floral prints.

Tuscan Teal

Bold blue-green tones offer a fresh take on Winter colour-ways. Vibrant teal hues have the intensity of paint pigments for a saturated look. Paired with navy, Tuscan teal enlivens core classic or is further brightened with flashes of white. Jersey and knit applications lend statement shades a slouchy softness.

Charcoal Slate

Cooling slate grey is combined with an ashy charcoal undertone for a smoky winter feel. Deep dark shades become a core colour for winter, suitable for both boys and girls. Sports infused loungwear applications have a cosy appeal while pewter toned glitter finishes are perfect for partywear.
