More than just fine wine

Did you know that there is a colour of the year?

Each year, Pantone (self proclaimed colour experts) determine a colour for the year.  For 2015 that colour is Marsala.

PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR 2015 - Marsala 18-1438

Marsala is a “naturally robust and earthy wine red“.  A great colour to think about incorporating into your Autumn/Winter wardrobe.

It is essentially a burgundy colour, and expect winter lines to be full of it.  It is a great colour for us moving into Autumn here in NZ.   A great to way try it is in leather shoes, bags, and jackets.

If you prefer warmer tones, try a browner toned burgundy teamed with green, navy, or other browns.  If you prefer cooler tones, try a plum toned version paired with pinks, rose, or cream.
