The Colours of the Collection

There are quite a number of colours that have caught my fancy for the upcoming capsule collection and in my mind these colours are in two groups - the Atomic colours that are in shades of grey and pink and blue; and four colours I have dubbed "Voices of the earth" because they speak to me of growth, renewal and healing on earth.

The Atomic Colours

Honeysuckle pink - Pantone colour of the year 2011/2012 and still going strong!

 Lush dark ominous grey! dear Black, its time to take a backseat.... for me grey is the new black

This is the amazing blue colour smalt! I wont say more - watch out for this colour and the unique way I am going to be introducing this colour to the collection.
You are going to join me to say Smalt rocks!

And the gloriously warm Voices of Earth colours  - I love the chillis so much! they are so insistent and strong and alive

 And the dark yellows with their hint of summers and warm weathers... good enough to light you up anyday

Lemon leaves - the perfect smell.... the waxy smoothness of these leaves, their vibrant green.... I love I love I love

Terracotta - these reminds me home... of wet clay after heavy rain... of West Africa... of my colour.... of me...
 and I am in love with this mix of terracotta and Chocolate

So get ready to step out in these colours in 2012!
