A closer look: Plum Crazy

Purple, in all its rich, royal splendor, falls on the color wheel somewhere between magenta and violet. Plum Crazy, the first of our new offerings for Spring 2013, is a celebration of the darkest hues of this color, highlighted by a handful of contrasting shades. Our Trend Reporter Liz has more.

What inspired it …

“Plum Crazy is a stylized interpretation of the Scandinavian prints found in the 50s and 60s, with the simple two-dimensional motifs lending a retro vibe. In combination with spring’s ‘it’ colors — plum, teal and lime green — a perfect punch of tangerine keeps it modern and seasonless.”

How to wear it …

“My favorite color to wear with Plum Crazy is definitely green! With emerald being called the color of the year, I predict you’ll soon be adding a little green to your closet. This pattern looks so good with olive; the neutral green really lets the pattern shine.”
