Retroflow analysis: Pale blue

Colour Trends: Pale Blue

This pale, cool blue featured in our trend Edge for Spring Summer 2018, chosen as an ideal shade for colour layering, working particularly well with pale mink and deep petrol green.

The colour has proved a popular option for 2018, spotted at many of the early shows, with strong examples seen at Blomus, in the shape of tableware (teamed with petrol green), at Hubsch, with elegant upholstery and at Valerie Objects with tables and stools.

We feel that this is a colour with some longevity, tweaking it only minimally going forward into 2018 by adding a touch more grey. Interestingly, pale blue, once again in a slightly greyed off formula returns after a brief hiatus for Autumn Winter 2019/20.
