Chestnut hues

We included a number of interpretations of brown hues in our fall / winter 2010 colour trends feature. Often an overlooked and derided colour, brown, and all its related shades, can instead strike the perfect balance between a fading, sunburnt summer and the coming burnt hues of many a deciduous tree. It’s simply the name that does it an injustice: brown – horrible word, worse connotations. Called ‘chocolate truffle’ or ‘dark oak’ however, and suddenly the stigma is gone. So for those desiring to work marron into their wardrobe for the season, here’s a near-perfect interpretation sporting a pop of yellow and a take on socks in heels.

Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views.
