Women's Fashion: The Color of Spring

The Color of Spring graphic

A few weeks ago I met a good friend in New York City. (Hi Lindsay!) We wanted to catch the Masterworks: Unpacking Fashion at the Met before it closed (and of course have a great visit!) So after seeing the exhibit, which was wonderful, we headed down to Soho to poke around the shops. Now I know that the Pantone color of the year is Greenery, but the fashion designers in Soho didn't seem to have gotten that message. The color that we saw EVERYWHERE, and I mean EVERYWHERE (OK, not Prada), was this soft pink color that Burberry calls Antique Rose. We saw it at Burberry;

We found it at Chanel:


This beautiful dress was hanging in the window at Valentino:

Both Kate Spade and Karl Lagerfeld offer bags in this color!

Even the latest pattern from Vogue Patterns is in this color!

So how about you, are you planning any spring sewing in this color?
