I just love looking at the Pantone website for color inspiration. They have released their top picks for fashion color trends for Fall 2013. The colors will be found throughout fall fashion trends, and Many of these colors will make the leap from the runways into stationery and invitation design.As a designer, I am always looking at the seasonal color trends to see how they can inspire me to come up with some fresh new looks for Swanky Press. Interestingly enough, if you look at the new Christmas Cards that are already on the web for this year, you’ll see that Linden Green and Deep Lichen Green are already making a showing (before we saw this list)! I love the shade of grey in Turbulence, and plan on using that tone with more of our gift items and home decor. Mykonos Blue, Vivacious, and Acai will get picked up on birth announcements and invitations.
As for me personally, I’m most drawn by Vivacious and and Acai. I think I’ll design a new iPhone case in those colors for myself. I’ve been holding on to my iPhone 4s for 2 years now, and am anxiously awaiting the new iPhone release in late September so I can upgrade. (Just a hint….same as last year, Swanky Press will have cases to fit the new releases THE SAME DAY the phone launches. Most retailers make you wait a few weeks while they rush to make the cases. No worries here – we are all set and ready to go!)
If you are drawn to any of the new colors, don’t forget that you can always leave a note in “special requests” when ordering any of our products stating that you want a color change. We don’t charge extra for this…and honestly, it’s really fun to see all the great color combinations our clients pull together!
