Global Colours 2024/25



Our Global Colours Overview is the essential colour planning tool for 2024/25. Colour directions are illustrated in an easy to navigate report, featuring the colour flow, our Continuity Colours, key observations, colour evolution and development.

Here’s a little of what you can expect to find inside…


Continuity Colours



Reflecting a less transient approach, the ten key colours for 2024/25 are carried through from previous seasons and reframed in new contexts. One of the ten key colours, Crow is a black with a warm blue undertone. In our 2024 story Memory, Crow feels soft, enhancing a shadowy mood. In Mine, it amplifies the brightest hues to dramatic effect.


Colour Observations



Charting the evolution of colour families, this is a view of comparative seasons from SS 2023 at the centre, through to 2024/25 on the outer ring. Taking a look at the yellows; they retain a balance of coolness and warmth, clarity and shade and this is a steady group with minimal disruption. The previous season’s light green-yellows consolidate into Sulphur, and a cool anchor Fool’s Gold adds a new colour aspect.


Geographic Colours



Global Colours Overview is supported by our Geographic Colours Overview, where the colour nuances for Europe, the Middle East, Africa, North America, Latin America, India, Asia and Australia & New Zealand are explored over 100+ pages.



Regional colour preferences are influenced by many things including light, landscape, unique drivers and culture. In this supplement, the global colour analysis and palette building first shown in MIX Magazine issues 70 and 71 is developed to highlight these geographic nuances.
