Earthy rich tones of brown are popping up everywhere in new season collections, from the deepest chocolate and mocha to toffee, caramel, and butterscotch. And wherever the colour palette wanders, we’re loving the complexity and intensity of every variation of the shade.
There’s a common theme when it comes to describing shades of brown, and it’s usually associated with deliciousness (think chestnut, cocoa, walnut, and gingernut).
Brown is officially the new black, bringing with it a flavoursome punch of deep layered texture. There’s something warm and endearing about brown; plus, when it comes to the psychology of colours, brown is deemed relaxing, warm, and humble and considered a grounding colour. It’s also a neutral but with undertones of red, yellow, and, of course, black, so lends itself to accompanying many other colours. It’s a stylish choice to pair with linen neutrals too.
We’ve gathered together some of our favourite pieces from new season designs to accessories and footwear – all with the shared aim of celebrating the glorious shades of brown.
