Fall and winter 2015 serves an umbrella of tones that intertwine earthy deep neutrals with bold colors. They echo a landscape of hope, imagination, inspiration, contemplation and fun.
According to Pantone International Organisation the color scheme of the Fall and Winter 2015 looks exactly like this:
In Fall all designers recollected significant moments in American history – from the flirtatious twenties to diorish new looks, bohemian hippie and modernists of the ‘60s and ‘70s – while joining together a passion for hues and styling that are easy to wear by both sexes – women and men. According to executive director of the Pantone Color Institute Leatrice Eiseman, this Fall is, in fact, the first time we are witnessing a true unisex color scheme.
Marsala Is the Color of the Year 2015
I’ve already mentioned that the color of the year 2015 is Marsala, the color of Sicilian wine that is strong and sweet. Rich and robust, Marsala embodies the warmth and richness of a deliciously fulfilling meal, while its red and brown heart suggests a sophisticated earthiness.
You could see Marsala in lots of designers’ collections, and every time everyone of them added Marsala a different hue. While Christian Dior preferred it a brown undertone, Balmain opted for a
hotter redder one.
Pay attention to the Dior’s dress worn with the high-higher-the-highest boots and the contrast between the pieces. Speaking about the CD’s collection, designer Raf Simons mentioned he wanted to create “something more liberated, darker, more sexual”. He succeeded in doing so, I guess.

Marsala coats and trench-coats look bold and cause a wow-effect. Fringe can be placed elsewhere – on suede jackets, shoes, capes, bags. etc – it a bold trend in Fall & Winter 2015.
Dried Herb for Fall 2015
Well, it doesn’t make any difference how you call this colour – khaki, safari, olive green or dried herb. The only thing that matters is that it’s chic, deep and redolent of nature’s herbs.
I’m a fan of Michael Kors. Every piece of every collection of his is damn good.
Fur this season will be extremely on trend.
Alberta Ferretti served Dried Herb with a dressing that had a fleur of Italian Renaissance:
Biscay Bay (Dark Turquoise) for Fall and Winter 2015-2016
Biscay Bay is as elegant as turquoise, but a bit cooler and more confident than turquoise color usually is. Biscay Bay reminds of tropical waters and soothing far-away places you might have visited in a your dream.
I like the combination of kind of a solemn tweed coat and a sheer dress underneath: style and fashion are always about the contrast, are they not.
It’s so easy to make a statement without a slightest effort in dresses in Biscay Bay color by Bottega Veneta and/or Monique Lhuillier FW 2015:
Speaking of Reflecting Pond I cannot but recollect a touching cartoon I saw in my childhood. It was about Little Raccoon, whose mum ordered him to fetch some sedge out from the pond. It was dark in the forest as we was heading for sedge. However, he managed to reach the pond and looked into the water surface. There he saw a face which started pull faces and poke fun at him. Little Raccoon got scared and run away without any sedge. He told to his mum about a monster who lived in the pond and the faces he was pulling at him. Mum advised him to smile into the Reflecting Pond and promised him that the monster would smile to him in reply. Sure, it happened exactly like Raccoon’s mum said.
When you are such a confident business lady who is wrapped from head to toe in posh and solemn attire by Michael Kors, – self-irony will do; just give this world a little smile.
Thanks to green undertone Reflecting Pond provokes deep thinking and a strive to new beginnings, while a touch of cooling blue links it with dreams and fantasies.

Color Trend Report FW 2015: Cadmium Orange
Warm and welcoming, Cadmium Orange boosts optimism and brings fun. Wear pieces in Cadmium Orange on their own or to highlight the contrast with clothing in brown, Oak Buff or Amethyst Orchid.
Cashmere Rose for Fall 2015
To color and liven up windy stormy days this Fall, add to your outfit a soft and gentle fleur with he help of a stroke of Cashmere Rose.
Altuzarra preferred a lighter tone of Cashmere Rose to build stylish & classy & polished looks:
Amethyst Orchid for Fall and Winter 2015-2016
Radiant Orchid was the color of the year 2014, and this year lots of designers paid tribute to this enigmatic, vibrant and exiting color. Each of them saw Amethyst Orchid through specs with different lens color. So, while Barbara Tfank used violent for simple and beautiful dresses in retro style (2nd from the left), Yohji Yamomoto created the images of “real girls of today”, proving that a draped piece of fabric may be complete and incomplete at one and the same time.
Stormy Weather FW 2015
To tell you the truth, this color encompasses all 50 shades of gray, but since the cliche may be copyrighted, Pantone used Stormy Weather term. Whatever the name of the color is, it is surely impossible to stay unnoticeable in these outfits in gray.

Oak Buff for FW 2015-2016
After a stormy cold weather there comes the sun to bring us comfort and hope. Oak Buff is a tone of mellow yellow and evokes warmth and pleasant feelings. Sometimes Oak Buff is full of gold, and in this case it glimmers on and on. In other words, this colour is absolutely crucial for Fall.
Desert Sage and Light Green FW 2015
If you add to Oak Buff a couple of touches of green, you’ll get Desert Sage. Experiment with the resulted colour for some time, and you’ll surely get such neat and polished looks as these ones:
Never stop experimenting, and you’ll surely fall into light-greens like these ones. At least, that’s what the trials ended at Dior and Prada’s brands:
