There are two ways to consider the colors of winter in men’s fashion: the traditional spectrum of cold tones with a few pinches of yellow and red or follow the trends suggested by the fashion industry. In the first case we have a fixed chart composed by cooler colors, namely, shades of green, blue and violet combined with Brown, white, black and full range of gray. In the second we found an elaborate chart based on market trends and behavioural studies that demonstrate which path the consumption will take. At times many of these colors are repeated in other, unexpected tones and strong colors, creating interesting contrasts and elegant, contributing to the visual male becomes more Rico.
Traditional Winter Colors
Blue is a cold color and has the power, the right amount of “cool” the other two primary colors that are warm. Its blend with yellow green with generates the magenta creates violet, and dosing that mix we arrive in burgundy, purple or olive green, colors ubiquitous in the Windows during the cold season.
But winter is not restricted to cool colors, looks come alive with warm hues that earn more shades closed as Brown, pumpkin, guava and mustard. The composition is made with two cool colors and a warm in equidistant spaces in the chromatic disk is known as triática and combination yields good results in winter, creating looks balanced, as has been shown here.
Here is an example of vintage women’s fashion on http://www.montchaninstores.com/2017/07/the-womens-fashion-of-the-1930s/:
Note: the neutrals like black, white, gray and beige continue interacting with the other colors usually, as well as in summer.
I set up a table with colors that can be found in collections of winter every year with some variations, as the green which becomes more opaque or alive from one year to the next, or the Navy Blue that can change to blue klein, for example. See below:
Trends For The Season Presented By Pantone
Pantone LLC is a company of Nine Jersey, considered a world authority on color. Its founder Lawrence Herbert created an identification system, combination and communication of color that allows the industry to reproduce faithfully, this methodology became critical in the graphic arts, architecture, decoration and textile industry, among others. Every year the Pantone color of the year-elect this time is the Radiant Orchid-and indicates the hues that will be more present in the winter and in the summer, but it is important to highlight that this choice occurs based on sweeping searches the world looking for color are significant influences.
In the northern hemisphere has been released the color chart for winter 2014/2015 (below), in theory should still be seeing around the 2013/2014 chart (above), but with the advent of fast fashion and clothing from China, worried about what’s going on now, you can find a mixture of the two tables in the Windows, where shades as the Misted Yellow (14/15) appear side by side with the Pitcher (13/14).
It is interesting to note that by being very specific colors you’ll find hardly any in a winter collection made by one brand, but it’s not impossible to see Cypress, Cognac and Royal Blue in military-inspired items, for example.
