Fashion and Interior Colour Trends, Dressing for Dinner – ‘New Neutrals’ for SS18

I’m pretty sure it’s not just me but do you find when you go out for dinner you subconsciously dress to match the restaurant interior? I suppose it is just the animal in us wanting to look comfortable and belonging in a given environment.

You have also probably noticed that current interior colour trends and fashion colour trends, more than any other year I can recall, are very closely linked.

The love of rose quartz pinks, cool pale blues, camels, coppers and brass in interiors are also abundant on the catwalks for this Spring and Summer 2018 (SS18). In fact tea rose interior paint for walls has been described as the new white by Elle Decorations Michelle Ogundehin)

If you would like to look the part in an interior inspired by Miami’s Art Deco shapes and colours (of which there are several lush dens such as Leo’s Nightclub and restaurants such as Sketch London), you need look no further than a silk Sandy Eclipse tie.

*The background camel colour of this tie is very difficult to photograph but it is a glorious bronzed camel which plays with the light beautifully at the twist of the knot.

Freedom Tie was also inspired by Miami, by the iconic facade of Freedom Tower.

And Lovewell silk tie (perfect for a wedding) which was inspired by Howard Lovewell Cheney’s iconic Miami Beach Post Office building designed in 1937.

  1. My clothing choice these days is mostly inspired by exteriors – i.e., the outdoors! 😉 As far away as this world is from my daily existence of getting out into the woods or desert to photograph, I still enjoy seeing fashion. Your ties are beautiful, and that first pattern and color combination are fabulous, Nicki! Have a great 2018!

  2. You know I dress for the weather! I wish I could do fashion but I live vicariously through you. And I love seeing your sketchbook. Although I’ve had the privilege of seeing the finished work of most of your pieces, I’ve never seen the book! As for what to wear to a yacht party, well you never know!
