Now that the election season is over, we can fInally focus on the kinds of decisions that really matter to the critters at Cathy Heck Studio: Pantone’s Colors of the Year!
Can you guess which one is number one for Spring 2013? Drum roll please.
You are right! 19-3964 Monaco Blue. How did you know?
This is not the Blue-States-vs-Red-States blue, but rather the color seen on Monaco Blue stuff vs Tangerine Tango stuff (last year’s poppin’ color, decorating everything from clothing to coffee pots). Notice that this year‘s color is more calm, serene and, well, downright comforting. Perhaps that is what we all need right about now.
We are also feeling a little bit proud around here that the indigo blue prediction we made in January in the Cathy Heck Studio Mini Trend Report was correct! We love a good dose of the blues every now and then. Of course, we prefer the happy blues … rather than the sad oreo cookie blues. So, to celebrate the blissful blues, the critters from one of our latest collections, Safari Party, have decided to proclaim today as Monaco Blue Day in the studio and they have all dressed up in their finest dusty-navy blue duds.
By the way, the top 10 fashion colors for spring 2013 also include Dusk Blue, Emerald, Grayed Jade, Linen, Poppy Red, African Violet, Tender Shoots, Lemon Zest and Nectarine, all of which were handy for our Safari critters while accessorizing their Monaco Blue statement pieces.
