Rose Copper, Rusty Tangerine, Radiant Orchid, Teal, Warm Oatmeal, Navy and French Mustard
This collection was inspired by the 1980s BBC miniseries The Singing Detective, in which the protagonist, Philip Marlow, is hospitalized for a chronic skin condition that has him spend his days lying in bed bored and feverish. He begins to slip into a noir-ish fantasy world where he plays a detective as well as have multiple flashbacks from moments in his childhood in wartime England. The pallet uses more muted, basic colors that were popular in the ‘40s such as Navy and Oatmeal and juxtaposes them with ‘80s pop colors such as Teal and Radiant Orchid.
Radiant Orchid plays a key role in the color palette. It not only acts as a serious pop color, it also somehow brings the rest of the colors together and makes more sense in the context of one another.

HOW DO YOU USE COLOR TO SUPPORT YOUR BRAND'S SIGNATURE STYLE?
I often like to mix fabrics in my designs and that often means mixing colors. I think this keeps the collection fresh and lively.
