Autumn/Winter Trends 2012

At the Pulse London trade show that I visited on the 12th of June, Mix also discussed key colours and themes of what is going to be hot for this winter.

So the three key themes outlines by Mix were headed “Bleep”, “Ember” and “Shanty”

Bleep was by far my favourite, it focusses on retro computing imagery given playful personality. Key colours include metallic greys, lemony yellows, bright tomato reds, pastel apple green and flat powder blue.


“Ember” is concerned with the translation of images relating to the recent natural disasters in the world. The hues are more like traditional warm winter colours such as rich browns, charcoals, burnt oranges and deep wine red, freshened up with butter yellow and a jade hue in the pallette.

“Shanty” is fun and nautical, think nautical stripes, Primary red, and blue, pastel green and baby blues.

I thought it was interesting how bright the colour forecast is for next winter. I can’t wait to see bright colour popping accessories cheering up winter next season!
