SS17 Colour Trends

Sherene Melinda SS17 colour trends

September heralds the arrival of autumn and fashion’s busiest period for SS17 – with the industry’s top designers, models, journalists and bloggers beginning their jet set tour from the skyscrapers of New York to the skylines of London, Paris and Milan.

Following our collaboration with Éthologie at this year’s London Fashion Week, we're now looking back at the runways of the world’s biggest Fashion Weeks, where one theme that stood out this year was the designers’ use of colour combinations, some of which are shown below. 

Stella McCartney adopted complimentary neutral shades, as seen in their SS17 collection showcase in Paris:

Balenciaga shows they are not afraid to use vibrant colour in their latest collection, which debuted at Paris Fashion Week:

The use of shades of olive green by Sonia Rykiel was something that really stood out:

The use of shades of pink was one of the most prominent themes throughout and spotted in the SS17 collections of Givenchy, Valentino and John Galliano:

Our handbags are made using leather both inside and out. We use nappa leather on the outside and the handbags are lined with an ecofriendly (using no harmful chemicals or dyes) natural pigskin leather in the inside. This helps to make our bags incredibly soft and luxurious but also durable and longlasting.

For our signature feature that we have become known for we use genuine Springbok hair-on-hide leather. The ethical source of the materials is very important to us. Springbok are classified as non-cites (which means there is no threat to the survival of the species) and the animals live freely in abundance in South Africa. The sustainability of the species is carefully managed and the population is culled to keep the ecosystem in balance. The local food industry benefits from this and the by-products are also utilised in decorative ways in interiors, furniture and fashion.

All our leathers are a by-product of the food-industry.

We use only high quality YKK zips and silver-coloured metal chains, studs and handbag hardware.

All our handbags are offered with a white cotton dustbag to keep them clean.
