Old Meets New

Old Meets New!

Hayley and I have been busy coming up with new colorways and we are thrilled to share the newest batch of repeatable colorways with you!  These beauties (on a few assorted bases) will be headed to NYC with us next weekend, but, we have to share with the class…so, a  Blogupdate is in order!

In addition to the new kids, we dusted off the old recipe book and found some vintage Plucky colors, and we think it’s high time that they came out to play again! Grady’s Grouse… neutral, warm and broody…yes, please!  Sweet Nothings…vibrant, jewel toned perfection…purple lovers unite!

A few words about our new colorways:

Empire –  Shades of mid-gray with light greenish gray undertones.  More gray/less aqua than Maelstrom.

Bada Bing –  Deep shades of maroon and burgundy with hints of charcoal.  Darker than Full Bodied Red and less purple leaning than Garnet Martini.  Cooler, less red leaning than Cabaret. Think broody black cherry!

Endless Summer –  Periwinkle undertones with the loveliest blurple shading. Less purple/more blue than Southern Summer.

Succulent – Tonally variegated with shades of cool mid-green, navy and charcoal. There is not really anything to compare this to. Succulent is in a class by itself.

Bingo –  Delicate yet zippy and zingy! Peachy pink undertones with strawberry pink shading.  More pink/brighter than Hudson. Much more coral leaning than Petticoat.

Cantina –  Juicy, saturated shades of coral and peach with a hint of a pink undertone. Darker, more saturated than At the Copa. Lighter/brighter than Punchy. Festive!

Frond –  Spring green in a skein! Yellow leaning, bright fern green. Think mid-century Palm Springs.  Not as bright as Chlorophyll and lighter/brighter than Splendor.

High Line – Inky and tonally variegated mid-navy blue with silvery undertones.  Lighter, with more gray undertones than Good Jeans.  Not as “bright” Dive Bar.
