"Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony."
I had this article ready since January, when I was in the middle of my exams.
I must admit I am the biggest procrastinator ever. I tend to find all sort of interesting, more important stuff to do when I have to work on my projects or study. This particular one actually is far more interesting and exciting, isn’t it? I did love last year’s Color of the year, Pantone 17-1463 Tangerine Tango, mostly because of its brightness and spirited shade that instantly made you feel happier, lively and dynamic. And I still do, especially cause I’m so looking forward for these pieces to hit stores.
But...this year’s color really is something special! It’s bold, it’s vivid, it’s simply beautiful!
You already know that I absolutely adore green, especially emerald green.
Ever since my mother used to buy those bright green velvet, silk or lace dresses for me, because she thought they’re a perfect match for my eyes and sent me to kindergarten, making my fellow classmates envy me, I knew that was my color. I knew it then and I know it now, but unfortunately beautiful green clothes are so hard to find in stores these days, aren’t they? That was until this year, of course. Of course, not every single shade of green is the same. I absolutely adored last year’s trend obsession with mint and olive/ army green. I’m not the biggest fan of dark/forest green, though. But Emerald Green is THE color. The perfect shade. It inspires elegance, sophistication and luxury. It is the color of beauty, the color of life and prosperity. It is the color of every beautiful woman.
On the runways, Emerald Green was seen for 2013’s spring-summer collections at
