Pantone’s 2013 Fall Fashion Color Report Featuring Carafe
An exemplary archetypal fall color is a rich and refined Carafe brown tone. A deep and tasteful brown provides an interesting and sophisticated alternative to the black basics usually worn in colder months. Both staple neutrals pair gracefully with more expressive colors within the palette, such as Samba, Koi and Vivacious.
The deep saturated brown color of Mocca resembles a piece of dark chocolate with hints of lighter brown tones shinning through and is a terrific Carafe match.
A similar exquisite richness is found in the color Crystal Copper, Smoked Topaz and Smoked Topaz Satin, along with its lighter counterpart Light Smoked Topaz as well as the Colorado Topaz and Light Colorado Topaz.
The beautiful option of intensifying the bead with a yellowish sparkle from the Crystal Aurora Borealis (abbreviated AB) and Champagne finish add a stunning element, one that complements the fall color pallet impeccably.
Smoked Topaz AB and Smoked Topaz Champagne are balanced with an earthy foundation and enhanced by a pop of sparkle which increases the feminine expression. Light Smoked Topaz AB, Light Smoked Topaz Champagne and Light Colorado Topaz AB are the lighter varieties of this beautiful color.
There are many stylish neutral tones that blend very nicely with the deeper brown hues. The Crystal Golden Shadow is one of the most popular effects ever made next to the AB finish and it offers a romantic, elegant and high end style.
Crystal Golden Shadow’s flawless champagne tone is perfect for every special event or occasion and is regarded as a staple for wedding jewelry, but its subtle quality allows it to be worn as every-day jewelry as well.
There are many charming Swarovski Crystal Pearl colors within the brown family to compliment your designs. The Deep Brown Crystal Pearl is the deepest most saturated brown tone, followed by Brown. The Bronze is a very popular neutral and brownish tone enveloped in a beautiful lustrous shine that is sophisticated and elegant.The Crystal Powdered Almond Pearl is a lovely light brownish color infused with a light powdered matt and pearlescent finish.
The Crystal Pearl in Platinum is another beauty that has an elegant and timeless quality similar to a taupe color that unites both light browns and silver grey tones together to create a refined neutral characteristic with a slight matt and pearlescent finish.
