color & inspiration
All great events and remarkable concepts can be traced back to a pivotal moment or idea. In the same way, notable and lasting trends have their roots in the fundamental interests and emotions of the era. Art imitates life, and trends reflect the pulse of society.
Our 2013 color trends come from a culture that is comfortable on the edge, poised between what is real & imagined, definite & possible, practical & fantastical. Today we are each a balancing act, a shifting mosaic, a layered file of what is and “what if.” The contented tension between extremes creates new moods and color palettes, and a unique style that is anything but a compromise. Not muddled in the middle, but instead enhanced, exaggerated, engaging.
These are the significant trends that we see coming, and we are sure you will see yourself within them. Enjoy.
The first trend, phenomena, is an exciting experiment with hyperreality and wild imaginings, science and surrealism.
The second trend, vestiges, merges the fantastically modern with what is distressed and doggedly industrial.
The third trend, dialects, speaks to our celebration of what makes us different and what brings us together.
Curated, our fourth trend, is where yesterday, today and tomorrow meet and where our moments are chronicled in a digital diary.
