Each new fashion season the Overlords of Colour at Pantone scour the catwalks to identify the key trend shades that designers are collectively loving on, which eventually trickle down into our high street stores. The palette for
fall autumn 2013 includes the typical nature-inspired hues that crop up at this cooling time of year, muted greens and the fiery shades of dying leaves, with some rich jewel tones thrown in to ensure looks won’t blend into the scenery. Pantone’s colour of the year, Emerald 17-5641, still isn’t showing up in affordable fashion as much as this green addict would like, but Nails Inc have, um, nailed it with their limited edition polish shade Queen Victoria Street. Here’s the rest of this season’s colours for your fingertips.
