Welcome three new Spring colors and also a color which had an early surprise release last month!
First is Clementine, the color that had an unexpected early release
Spring is all about bold, bright, poppy colors mixed with soft and acidic yellows and greens. Clementine hosts these shades in a pattern that lends almost a hand-drawn appearance. Part ikat, part floral, Clementine features pink, salmon, orange and yellow for a juicy, vibrant visual. It’s cheerful, feminine and brimming with those blazing shades we love for spring.
Next is Blue Bayou, maybe not technically, but I believe it was named after one of my favorite restaurants at Disneyland.
The hand-rendered floral pattern offers simple geometric elements like a playful zigzag interior. True blues play against fresh white and inky black for a print with a global appeal.
Another which reminds me of the Happiest Place on Earth is Julep Tulip, of course making me crave a cool drink from the Mint Julep Bar in New Orleans Square (where the Blue Bayou is also located... hmm). This one is definitely getting added to my collection ASAP!
This softly structured design, boasting fresh violet, bright magenta and grass green, is inspired by the lavish interior textiles our print designers love to collect. Inside, a stylized garden lattice of woven tonal stripes keeps us grounded. The finished pattern has a hand-panted, almost watercolor appearance that has us thinking of green vines and playful tulips.
And finally we have Citron, my least favorite of this particular release of colors, but I do love a good mushroom-like gray and lime green just like the next girl.
We transformed this hand-rendered floral pattern into something completely different and exciting with one of the boldest hues of the season. The simple geometric elements, like the playful zigzag interior, deliver a delightful punch with the bold green beside a more neutral gray.
And there you have it, Spring 2014 Vera Bradley Color Release.
