Lilac, wisteria, lavender, periwinkle and not only among the many shades of purple to choose from for this spring-summer 2019. More sober and feminine nuances than strong Ultra Violet, Pantone Color of the Year 2018, often difficult to wear for us mere mortals. We begin by dispelling the false myth that lilac does not suit to all. In contrast, lilac suits brown hair, blonde hair and even red hair well and helps to brighten the complexion.
Lilac is a bon ton and delicate alternative that lends itself to countless variations: from the ideal man’s suit for the day at the office, to the iconic trench coat, to the fun oversize bomber jacket for leisure time, to the pullover perfectly matched with Attico ‘s paperbag trousers, to end up with hyper-feminine dresses for special occasions such as weddings or special events.
Among the designers who have shown lilac on the catwalk in recent years, one of the most interesting collections is the SS18 one by Victoria Beckham who chooses lilac as a must-have color, offering masculine-cut blouses and maxi blazers in lavender tones and completing the look with toned accessories sur-ton.
