Summer styles are slipping away, and Fall Fashion 2015 is here!
It starts with the short-lived, but highly-anticipated, return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Then the foliage follows suit, changing from dry-looking olives and decaying greens to fiery red-oranges, showy yellows and rich earthy browns, after which the trees dramatically shed their leaves in anticipation of the coming winter. Finally, out come all those cozy, snuggly knits that we stored so patiently all summer long. Autumn has arrived!

Pantone Fall Palette 2015
This fall, our favorite fashion season is a muted and sophisticated boy-meets-girl affair of effortless opposites and elegant shades, poised and confident. Starting with the glitzy allure of the 20s through to the mid-century modernists and ending with the boho-chic of the 70s, progressive moments in the 20th century have been distilled into a colorful homage. This palette comprises the most important and directional hues for Fall Fashion 2015. “This season displays an umbrella of accord that weaves earthy neutrals with a range of bold color statements and patterns to reflect a landscape of hope, fun, fantasy and all things natural,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute about fashion’s time-traveling and “truly unisex” color palette for Fall 2015. “Naturally-inspired colors remind us of things that are real and protective,” she continues, noting that this season’s colors “are evocative of a love for nature and a timeless appreciation for warmth and security.”
Particularly the 60s inflected Cashmere Rose. “A tactile and soft pink hue, it renders exactly what it promises,” she adds. “Cultivated in its richness, Cashmere Rose displays a gently persuasive and composed pink that is more upscale than downtown.” Which is why ladylike designers such as Lela Rose and Pamella Roland featured it – as an elegant coat and evening gown, respectively. Rose found herself inspired by “the colorful, patterned and textured world of birds,” while Roland was feeling in the pink after a trip to Paris (who wouldn’t?!) and channeled that ooh-la-la in to creating “classics for the future.” And it certainly dress-ed things up at Alice & Trixie (“just the right mix of mod and boho”), Rachel Pally (“simple-yet-sexy”) and somewhat cerebrally at Katie Gallagher, who was inspired by the notion of a “blur or blob in space.”

Cashmere Rose on the Runway
Pink has continued stalking the catwalks as a strong trend for Spring 2016. “I’m in my rose period,” notes Carolina Herrera, who layered thick horizontal “stripes” of tulle in various pinks to fabulous effect. Diane von Furstenberg was similarly feeling la vie en rose and seeming to channeling her iconic 70s ad campaign, but with a new millennium twist: “Feel like a woman – wear a pink dress.” And Banana Republic’s much-buzzed-about new’ish Creative Director Marissa Webb – the one responsible for making J. Crew so craveworthy at one time – showed tailored separates that make a girl actually want to sport workwear. The Spring collection also represented a collaboration with the CFDA and cult-fave designer Timo Weiland, and the colorful, travel-inspired looks are all the proof we need that it’s time, once again, to think pink! Particularly paired with hints of coral and salmon as shown in this look.

ISHARYA Cashmere Rose Jewelry
Translation: we love to think pink and have jumped onto this trend like there’s no tomorrow…or better yet: like it’s yesterday! Starting with our 24k-gold trimmed Pastel Rani collection, which features Cashmere Rose’s opulent gemstone besties: violet, orchid and sunny daffodil.
Our Orchid Goddess collection features the feminine pink, purple and fuchsia undertones that make Cashmere Rose so flattering. Plus go so well when paired with a menswear-inspired jacket or blazer.
And when we’re feeling unabashedly girlie and ready to get our accessorize-Accessorize-ACCESSORIZE on, we’ll be reaching for the cheery Rose Cashmere, daffodil and violet long earring – paired, naturellement (like Pamella) with the très Cashmere Rose Pastel Rani Statement Ring. Or, perhaps, a stack of cuffs made from the Pastel Rani Quartz cuff, the timelessly elegant Orchid Goddess Skinny cuff or Honeycomb Bangle or really rockin’ and Rose-in’ in a princess-perfect pink cuff.
And shamelessly show off our Cashmere Rose panache after we place our order and proceed to somewhat (um, okay, very) showily – and slowly! – reach for that Pumpkin Spice Latte.
