I can’t tell you how much I love Spring! There’s that hint of promise and optimism everywhere I look. The air seems lighter somehow, the trees that have been so long without their verdigris coats begin to look more cheerful and the spring flowers are finally brave enough to emerge from their protective winter cocoons.
I think it’s the colours and textures of Spring that make it such a wonderful time of the year, possibly my favourite season of all. The fresh pastels and soft newness in nature is reflected in our high street windows. The dark, heavy palettes and almost smothering fashions have disappeared to be replaced with softer shades and textures that just can’t wait to be hung in our new season wardrobes!
One of the Spring fashion Pantones that have caught Team Cicily’s eye is Lilac Gray! Subtle enough to transport us out of winter without too much of a shock but with the ability to transform into a full-blown spring colour when matched with beautiful bright shades on the pink, green and gold spectrums.
Inspired by the Spring 2016 catwalks where Ellie Saab, Armani Prive and Zuhair Murad all celebrated the versatility of the Lilac Gray pantone and being the visual creatives we are we decided to put together our first glorious #InspoBoard brimming with ‘Lovely Lilac’.
Enjoy immersing yourself in the images and be inspired. This is the first of our #InspoBoards. We will be putting together one every month centred around something that has excited us, caught our eye and imaginations!
