Colours from the Runway - Autumn 2016

We've been working hard searching for this Season's must have colours, which sees a vast array of shades and hues, perfect for trying out new designs! So let's take a look at what we found...

This season follows a desire for tranquility, strength, and optimism inspired by a colour palette that is initially led by the blue family.

Along with anchoring earth tones, exuberant pops of vibrant colors also appear throughout the collections. Transcending gender, these unexpectedly vivacious colours for this season's palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical Autumn shades.

Blue skies represent constancy as they are always above us; greys give a feeling of stability; red tones invite confidence and warmth; while the hot pinkish purples and mustard yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.

So what do we have in our dyed merino fibre range to capture the mood of the Autumn season 2016?

Denim (51) Price: £2.99 per 100g

This cool, calming and strong shade is an important colour in the palette this season, displaying a subtle vibrancy and sophistication to your wardrobe. This shade can team up with any other colour and maintains a sense of consistency, making it a must have for your collection!

Dream (57) Price: £2.99 per 100g

Remaining in the blue family, dream is a light and airy shade appearing in nearly half of the designs on the runway this season. This sultry shade is perfect to wear with Conifer (34), Pewter (98) or Mulberry (76) for a fresh approach.

Granite (303) Price: £2.99 per 100g

This colour can literally be paired with any other colour in the collection, warm bright or muted, Granite can rely on the rest of the palette, and showcases practicality through a dependable but contemporary lens.

Poppy (63) Price: £2.99 per 100g

After the blue and grey subtle shades, poppy brings a welcome glow to the palette as a warm and sensual red that is pleasing on the eye. Wearing this exciting and dynamic shade oozes confidence and will make heads turn!

Pewter (98) Price: £2.99 per 100g

Pewter is a hearty, pleasing and approachable shade that can be paired up with any other shade in the Autumn 2016 collection. This colour has no time frame and is truly grounded and can be trusted as a reliant piece in your wardrobe.

Mulberry (76) Price: £2.99 per 100g

This is our favourite shade this season, with its warm and welcoming properties it provides an Autumn version of the pinks that we have been used to seeing in previous collections.

Conifer (34) Price: £2.99 per 100g

Conifer brings a fresh and sophisticated look to the colour palette. This shade displays brightness, panache and a depth of colour and elevates it from the more natural greens.

Mustard (21) Price: £2.99 per 100g

From one end of the colour spectrum to the other, mustard elegantly bounces off the other colours in the palette and provides a splash of uplifting vibrancy. This shade is unusual and appears spicier than the yellows in previous seasons.

Orchid (323) Price: £2.99 per 100g

If you want to make a statement then this colour is for you! Deviating from the blue, warm and neutral tones, orchid is a bright and rich purple with a pink tint belonging to the vibrant colour combinations and is a very unexpected colour to be seen in this Autumn!
