The foundation of any season’s collection are the colors and hues that underlie them, shape them, and eventually come to define them.

Interfiliere Paris is always the first to release their take on any season’s color trends, and for spring and summer 2012 it’s no different.

Interfiliere has also grouped their color trends for spring 2012 into different moods. For the spring / summer 2012 season they’re seeing three distinguishable color groups: tender, earthy, and floral.

Tender: The clearest and palest of pastels, ideal for lofty and silky fabrics and for a new vintage mood that is more sexy than candid.

Earthy: The earth hues: ochres, oranges and copper tones which support the passion for nature and organic environments to use with mat or shiny effects, with top-of-the-range laces, and for beachwear. Note a surge of ‘hand-dyed’ effects, especially indigo.

Florals:Floral tones, essential nuances for charming prints available now for ranges of limited volume.
