Imagine our surprise when Pantone announced 2014's "Color of the Year" as Radiant Orchid, and we realized that we had just made a large portion of our new collection's samples in this very shade. Our surprise then turned into delight as we did a little happy dance and thanked the holiday spirits for Jane's seemingly psychic abilities! We love Pantone's description of their selection for Color of the Year...
"An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society. An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
We personally couldn't think of a better color to represent 2014, as we head full-throttle into launching Rosebud, a collection full of Jane's creativity and originality. All of the pieces above are brand-spanking new and set in rose gold, which we find pairs beautifully with the pink undertones of the radiant orchid hued amethyst.
Cheers to 2014! xo
