Green (from sage & dark aqua to our ocean teal hoodies) have been trending all week, it seems our gra for green is unwavering. But where did it start and what's influencing it now?
One of the first icons I interviewed was the icon that is Tippi Hedren, star of The Hitchcock classic, The Birds. Interestingly in that movie Tippi would be seen for almost the duration of the movie in the same outfit and it was felt the most attractive and tolerable colour is green. A particular shade of course. The famous costume designer Edith Head would go on to design one of the most legendary looks for the silver screen, a green dress and jacket that was worn by the star throughout the entire movie.
So, safe to say green is easy on the eye and definitely timeless! Especially this sage colour. I should also mention that the mother of Melanie Griffith was a gorgeous person to chat to, delicate and lady like but good craic too.
(Note the t-shirt I wore to interview her!)
So, this season the catwalks are filled with lashings of gorgeous green - from Tom Ford and Gucci to high street giants like & Other stories and Dune, there's green tweeds, embellished green fabrics with rich metallic threads for more formal wear looks and laid back greens for everyday luxury. The Pantone ‘Sharp Green’ is a keen yellow-green that is said to be “expansive and exuberant' and alongside Pantone 16-0847 ‘Olive Oil’ is a naturally nourishing golden green. These were flagged as colours to watch and wear for AW23!
We love to see green stripes in there too (we're invested - see our green breton stripe knit below) and classic breton stripes feature heavily too on our site.
See our all green category on littlebliss.com here! Fair to say we're committed to the trend!
