Rich and Saturated. The fall clothing at the Foursome is singing opera this season. It is truly deep and beautiful music. The most shocking notes come from the eyepopping color. Color? Shouldn’t we just talk about texture and layering for fall? Well, the textures are as great as they should be this time of year. . . corduroy, leather, various knit wear, felted and boiled wool, thick flannel, fleece, fluffy zips, canvas pants. But the most glorious pieces for your wardrobe this year will be full of color. Vibrant and energetic.
At night, I sometimes lie awake thinking about a distinct color I have seen popping up in many of the fall collections this year. Benjamin Moore calls it Habanero Pepper, Geranium, Pinata, Moroccan Red. I call it Heirloom Tomato, Bittersweet Red, Orange Wine. It is very saturated and a beautiful mixture of red and orange, not too much or too little of either. Its perfect. I love it paired with something navy. Stunning.
Another specific color to start collecting this fall is green. Our Buyer, Scott Winterbottom told me that we will be seeing more of this color in the months to come. He said its the hot color right now. We are seeing it in many shapes and shades. Chartreuse, Grass Green, Muted Lime Green, Chamomile, Deep Emerald Green. Even if you are a little shy, there is a hue to suite you.
Seeing, touching, and writing about the colorful fall apparel this year makes me giddy. A bit like a horse feels when the first nip of cool fall weather touches their nose. They run around the pasture with great speed and excitement, bucking with joy. Even if I have reason to be partial, I am very upfront, honest, and realistic. So you can trust me when I say that we have one of the best fall selections of merchandise I have ever seen at the Foursome. It sings.
