Greenery: The Colour of 2017

Pantone, the authority on colour, have named greenery as their colour of the year, which is fantastic news for us, as our spring collection is filled with green pieces that reflect the vibrant growth of the spring season. Whether you are a lover of green or not, find out why you should be making room for this beautiful shade in your wardrobe:

What does Pantone's colour of the year mean?

"A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude."

Why is green relevant to 2017?

"Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment, satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose." Leatrice Eiseman, executive director, Pantone Color Institute

What does greenery represent?

"A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings. Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate."

"Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world [...] A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality."

  1. Want to buy greens and browns but none of your outfits to my (older) taste. Pull-on stretch trousers would be nice in a range of leg lengths? Or calf length dresses with long/threequarter sleeves?
