Teal Women Collections

Every year Pantone declares the color of the year in the most extravagant way and it sends the world into a tizzy. This isn’t restricted to just fashion, beauty, tech, interiors, and larger graphic design applications are all in the mix.

Think about this, last year Rose Quartz was chosen as the color of the year. And before you know it rose gold was trending like nobody’s business. Ikea launched an entire range in the color, rose gold accessories, especially watches, became hot property. Women were running to their hair colorists for highlights and dyes in shades of rose. You blink and there were distinct interpretations of rose quartz everywhere. So feminine and so romantic.

Rose quartz, gave way to Green in 2017, rightly referred to as Greenery. And if you’ve been observant you would have seen colors complementary to green and shades of green trickling into your everyday world. True blue – which is a complementary shade to green has taken over the world of watches and accessories. Luxury watchmakers are blending in this shade to perfection. However, the two shades which are enjoying the most popularity are olive green and teal.

And between the two, our love is leaning towards Teal. Interestingly, the color gets its name from a species of Duck. Yes, you read that right. Google ‘Eurasian Teal’ and look at the detail around the duck’s eye and you will know exactly what we are talking about. See? Hang with us and you will stumble upon some cool things.
