FW14-15: what colors to wear?

Posted on

Dark greens, blues and reds
The season’s palette consists mainly of darker tones. Along with classic black, hues of evergreen, wine red and navy were seen on the runways of Derek Lam and Elie Saab, just to name a few.

Army greens and browns
Olivier Rousteing made army green the dominant color in his line for Balmain, all the while livening things up with a few pieces in hot orange or yellow. The same goes for Dolce & Gabbana: the designer duo emphasized dark colors (brown, navy, dark green, eggplant) but also included a few touches of red and yellow.

White and ivory
Other designers took things in a different direction, focusing on paler shades. The Barbara Bui and Chloé collections are among those that played up the wintry tones of white and ivory.

It’s perhaps the most surprising color trend of this winter. Whether fuchsia (Dior), salmon (Carven) or pale peach (Sonia Rykiel), shades of pink will be worn in multiple ways this fall, adding a sweet note to the end-of-year season.
