New York’s New Color for Spring
March 1st, 2012

NYC never fails to delight our eyes to the latest color trend. But rarely has one shade been seen with such insistence. Dear reader, the message from New York is … mint!

Call it pistachio, call it aqua or even call it celadon if you’re feeling particularly sophisticated — mint is most definitely the color for Spring. We saw it all over the city: on an edgy leather skirt in Soho (above), in a cardigan and belt combo at J. Crew‘s Rockefeller flagship, or luminous in lucite bangles at Alexis Bittar‘s Bleecker St shop (both, below).

The magazines were also full of the color. Let’s face it, the pun-worthiness of mint is a boon for every fashion copywriter. (Below, tearsheets from Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and People Stylewatch.)

And, yes, we’re minting it (see! can’t resist) here at J. Falkner, too. Our ‘Champagne Congratulations’ card and our ‘Peacock’ cards (below) are an easy way to stay on-trend, just in case you didn’t get onto the wait list for that Vuitton sorbet-colored frame bag.

Congratulations cards are available singly (with a pretty lavender envelope), and our Peacock cards come as boxed sets of 8, or as single cards. Check them out here.
