Why the need for comfort?
As an aspect of a colour family becomes broadly popular, so its evolutions become increasingly subtle. While thought can be given to how colour preferences will be influenced by Covid-19, our forecast trend drivers of instability, polarisation and economic uncertainty are, if anything, amplified. 

To seek comfort in these times is the most natural of responses, and to this end, the prevailing interest in warm and comforting yellows and golden ochre hues is forecast to continue from Beeswax in 
SS 2021 evolving into Harvest Gold for AW 2021/22.

With a simple shift of saturation, the soft aspect of SS 2021 Beeswax evolves into the richer Harvest Gold for AW 2021/22.

The versatility of these golds is reflected in the utilitarian application of Beeswax in our SS 2021 design direction Factory, and the decadence of Harvest Gold in the Swansong palette for AW 2021/22.
