2011 Colour Trends

We’re yet to fully appreciate 2011’s fashion trends and we haven’t even passed through the coldest days that winter will have to offer but, despite this, in a few months the Autumn / Fall 2011 catwalk showings will hit the likes of New York and Paris ahead of their release into stores in late 2011. Thus many of the world’s trend forecasters have long had available their takes on the trends we’ll be wearing when the season hits. Most of these are in the form of industry only guides, though today we can take a look into the crystal ball and get a sneak peak at the season’s colour trends

These particular colour trends come from Design Options, a trend forecasting company from Southern California. As such they’re heavily influenced by the area, and it won’t be until closer to the season that Fashionising.com can provide you with a look at some of the year’s global colour trends.

As Design Options see it, autumn (fall) / winter 2011 will have six distinctive colour trends:

Nu Vogue

Avant-garde and prevailing chic. Bronze tones of state of the art style flirt endlessly with bold confidence. Olive yarns mixed with shades of pale goldenrod give knits an alluring appeal.

Urban Romance

A tale of metropolitan melodrama. Midnight blue and silver, grey shades of cultural diversity and cosmopolitan give textured stitching equilibrium and charm. Memoirs of city nostalgia.

Edge of Night

Beyond the limits of darkness. Mysterious shades of forest green and plum amplify sequined edges and ruffled chiffon. Deep violet shades of exuberance ring a call of precision to manipulated, silken yarn. Silver finishes give luxuriant motifs added ingenuity.

Fill Seeker

The pursuit of extravagant ornamentation. Luscious shades of hot pink intertwine majestically within bastiste and silken silhouettes. Burnt orange tones of superfluity fuse methodically on a canvas of raschel knit.

autumn 2011


Spellbound and romantically sensual. Greenish yellow tones of nostalgia fuse rhythmically with bold saturations of aquamarine and dark sienna. Copper flecks of bedazzled resonate with splendid vivacity amidst soft patterns of royal blue velvet.
