Gail says “The new colour from Pantone is stunning and I’m expecting to see lots of beautiful collections featuring the tone when I head off to the annual trade shows early next year, I am also loving the complementary groups of colours Pantone shared on their recent webinar which I watched with interest.
‘Under the sea’ is a real favourite of mine, I’m desperate to see what our suppliers of scarves do with these gorgeous colours.
‘Trippy’ is a little bit out there for most of our clients here at OceanJ but I’m still keen to see how jewellery company’s explore these more outrageous colour combinations.
‘Symaptico’ is very soft and delicate, this group lends itself perfectly to gloves, hats, poncho’s, all of which I’m sure will be very popular.
‘Shimmering Sunset’, I can imaging our candle / diffuser suppliers making maximum use of these colour ways, they are also going to look fabulous in our many bag and purse collections (fingers crossed).
‘Focal Point’ is the boldest of the groups and I predict our accessories and especially our wall art from Miho Unexpected things will feature these shades heavily as they are more grounded in natural tones,
