koko talks about colour 2017 will be the year of Kale.

In keeping with tradition, Pantone have released the top ten colours for spring 2017, to coincide with various fashion weeks around the world.

Their predictions are usually pretty accurate — a keen eye can spot their list dotted throughout the spring/summer ’17 runways in a second — and last year they even hinted at what would be the colour of the year through their spring predictions.

This year, the list is decidedly subdued, featuring plenty of muted, earthy tones, including Kale and Hazelnut, with pops of primary colours like Lapis Blue and Primrose Yellow.

Following this yearly announcement everything from fashion trends to interior design is influenced by Pantone’s predictions: case in point, one of their colours of the year for 2016, Rose Quartz, has been seen everywhere from furniture to shoes and buildings.

Are you seeking a New Style for Autumn? Try Pinterest

jess3Everyone and their dog has a Smart Phone nowadays and quite a lot of people are using it for a lot more than sending an catalogue of overly abbreviated text messages to their Nephew asking him how his ski holiday was – How I miss my Nokia 3210..

It turns out, there’s a very handy app named Pinterest and our team at Koko think it’s a great tool to inspire your next style change and with Autumn abruptly calling off our Indian summer, is there a better time to freshen up your colour and cut?



So, what is Pinterest?

Pinterest is like a virtual bulletin or corkboard that allows users to find and curate images and videos.

You can easily post images from other websites to your Pinterest account using the “Pin it” task bar button, or you can just browse the Pinterest platform to discover, like, or “repin” content others have already posted.

Most of us here at Koko are using Pinterest to catalogue images that inspire us most to create outstanding, on-trend styles for all of you lovely clients.

So get creative! Create a board to bring to your next appointment and let’s collaborate!
