Next Years Hottest Fashion Colours

Each season PANTONE® creates a Fashion Color Report outlining the key colour trends – and the forecast for Spring 2016 at New York Fashion Week draws its inspiration from fashion.

Now although we at The Stripes Company occasionally flaunt the fact that we are able to take sartorial taste to a new level (please see Dan and Tilly in our previous post showing the versatility of stripes) it would take a brave soul to wear all these Pantone colours together

They may be better appreciated and enjoyed from a distance – perhaps as an accent –  and we would encourage you to think laterally or vertically.

The versatility of Striped Fabrics

The Stripes Company has commissioned a special couture dress to be designed in our multi colour striped fabrics to illustrate the versatility of these wonderful striped fabrics and products….

Terese Dennis, formerly the wardrobe supervisor with the Cirque du Soleil,  designed the dress and is now supervising the costumes for Chester Performs outdoor plays at Grosvenor Park in Chester  this summer.

The Stripes Company has also specially designed a men’s striped three piece tailored suit to match.

Both stripey outfits will be worn for the duration of the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show from 22-26 July 2015 where The Stripes Company can be found on stand CLM 112 –  a wahlu outside the Country Living Marquee
