Carlin has put all his experience and know how in his new prospective trend book NUANCES, and offers a new reading of the color and material’s life cycle, through harmonious, innovative and emotion-filled commitments. Carlin unveils for you three major color families for 2018.
A palette of aristochic tones composes the refined geometry of the new classics. Deep indigo blue and ecru structure the elegant shades of brown and khaki. Just as in the 1930s, adventurers neatly clad in safari jackets head off to the open grasslands of Africa in the quest for wild, untamed beauty.
The boisterous world of video games programs the summer wardrobe. The rules of the game consist of an interactive battle between pale greens, pinks and oranges, artificial greens and blues. Gamers and digital culture lovers will recognize the playful, synthetic tones of their favorite plasma screens.
Assertive, glowing and royal, red is a key directional color this season. A near dissonant ginger, an incandescent oddity, slightly shifts the chiaroscuro gradation illuminated and intensified by the warm shades.
