Although the white stuff is still covering the ground in most of the Northern Hemisphere, it is time to think about spring, especially when ladies' fashion is concerned. Last year, Pantone, the renowned color forecasting service, announced new fashion colors for the Spring 2016 season, which took us in the western wear and accessories niche a bit by surprise. You see, all of our leather, turquoise and coral might have to give way to softer, pastel hues come spring.
Even though we can still use some coral accents (Pantone Fiesta) and very pale turquoise (Pantone Limpet Shell), the rest of the colors call for new gemstones in jewelry design and some inventive spirit in the western clothing industry.
Below, you can see three different avenues we at hART Sense Design will be pursuing this spring: Rosey Mood - utilizing Pantone colors Rose Quartz and Serenity, Natural Beauty - combining Pantone colors Iced Coffee, Lilac Grey and Rose Quartz, and last but not least, a little more traditional western Old Barn - showcasing Pantone colors Fiesta and Limpet Shell.
Clothing, footwear, bags, and hats showcased in the mood boards above encompass such icons of western fashion as Old Gringo, Johnny Was, Liberty Black, American West, Charlie 1 Horse, Pat Dahnke and more. All of these products with links to the sites where they can be purchased are found here.
To make sure our customers like our Spring 2016 jewelry styles, we have opened the six jewelry designs seen above to voting at our BCC Club. If you want to give us your input, make sure to join the Club and you just might get rewarded for your vote by the very bracelet, necklace, or pair of earrings you voted for. Voting is open through the end of February, and winning designs will be announced by mid-March.
