I have been waiting, rather impatiently, for the new colors of linen to arrive. And now….the time has finally arrived!
I am really excited to add these new colors to my linen collection. I held a few samples in my hands the other day and they were stunning! The colors are vibrant and fun. I cant wait to start sewing and crafting with them.
I want to just give everyone a heads up and announce that the new shades will be on SALE starting Tuesday, January 3rd in IL020 linen. I think the lighter-weight linen works perfectly with these fun new colors. I have already made a list of my favorites! I haven’t quite figured out what I’ll make just yet though…so your suggestions are greatly welcomed!
Perhaps looks for the Spring 2012 Ready to Wear runways will give us all some inspiration! I loved the variety of colorful looks that designers showcased this season. Even I was inspired to add some color to my otherwise neutral toned wardrobe (black, white, gray….and more black….)
1st row: Chloe, Chanel, Christian Dior; 2nd row: Chloe, Givenchy, Jason Wu; 3rd Row: 3.1 Philip Lim, Givenchy, Jil Sander.
1st row: Alexander McQueen, Donna Karen, Proenza Schouler; 2nd row: Acne, Donna Karen, Chloe; 3rd Row: Christian Dior, Prada, Valentino.Fiery reds add a unexpected blast of color as they came down the runway. Try a skirt in a bright hue to add an exciting edge to your ensemble.

Blue is always a classic choice when it comes to colors. I’m really into the dreamy, soft blues that came down the runways. And, while that Chanel jacket will never be mine, I can still make something beautiful with linen!

I tend to avoid yellow clothing- having previously held the belief that yellow flatters NO skin tone. I will fully admit how wrong I was now. If done right, yellow looks fantastic. I can’t wait to incorporate a striking yellow number into my wardrobe. I am also on the hunt for a delicate, pale yellow dress to complete my life.
