Understanding the Three Spring Fabric Palettes

The 54 fabrics in the Spring collection are divided into three color palettes. With so many fabrics, how does one choose?

Here are some ideas, directly from the artist…

 

Palette 1: Sparrow Grey, Blackbird, and Moonlit Meadow

This portion of Spring 2017 includes rich blacks and various hues of neutral greys with a hint of deep green. This palette is at the heart of many Ivey Abitz wardrobes. With all season weaves, you can wear garments from this portion of the collection from season to season for years to come.

Weaves like the Blackbird Plaid Challis and Moonlit Meadow Vine Weave are so versatile that they can be worn for everyday or special occasions.

Palette 2: Blushed, Meadow, Peony, and Flaxseed

This pièce de résistance palette is at the center of the collection and ties all three collections together as a cohesive grouping. “Bridge fabrics,” as I call them, are ideal choices for mixing and matching all three collections together within a wardrobe.

A Fairholme Jacket in Meadow/Blackbird Knit effortlessly connects Palette One to Palette Two. The Canterbury Cardigan in Blushed Cashmere Knit along with dusters and frocks in Blushed Double Layered Voile connect this core palette to the other two palettes.

Palette 3: Hummingbird, Plumseed, and Feather Brown

Varying hue levels of plum and lavender blend in with the feather brown hues, creating a cohesive collection all on its own. Adding a garment in Blushed and/or Meadow from Palette Two expands your ensemble options exponentially.
