Buyers’ colour choices indicate a nuanced quest for differentiation. A warm and pinkish neutrality, dark and elegant colourful greyish tones, deceptively natural khakis and brownish hues signal a season of subtlety, where neutrals are acquiring new flavours and a new status. Eschewing any uniformity, these subtly coloured shades advocate a refined originality.
