Lemon Parfait

Zen is a trend women always welcome. And if the power and energy of nature can be conveyed through color, it would be seen in a palette of greens, blues, yellows and neutrals.

Spring 2011: Lemon ParfaitIn the delicious new color Lemon Parfait, natural tones bring a soft utilitarian feel; infused with intense citrus tones, resulting in the visual equivalent of a sip of cool lemonade. It’s a scene inspired by shades from saturated mustard to pale blue to gray. Sharp lime is calmed by dust and mocha neutrals and invigorated with sea foam, wild ginger, pistachio, clay and olive green.

Lemon ParfaitIt’s a play on matte and shiny, sophistication and Mother Nature, feminine and exotic. A whisper of Native American influence results in this richly decorative print, with paisleys in an updated composition. It’s a motif meant to encourage the adventurer, inspire a slight indulgence, and preach oneness between the mind, body and nature.

    It is something about this color that is yummy, or is it just the name?

  • Carla says:

    I absolutely love yellow! Just looking at it lifts my spirits. This fabric reminds me of great times in my room as a teen in the early 70′s as the color on these bags is the exact yellow that was on my walls. What an instant pick-me-up!
