Mexican Palettes for Spring

With this teaser of a season, everyone’s jumped the gun, then pulled back, then gotten sick about 3x and counting now. Spring and summer season’s on every merchandiser, buyer and customer’s mind, so it’s only appropriate to share a few patterns and palettes that caught our eye this week. Drawing inspiration from aztec culture, this Harvey Faircloth print was recently styled on Moda Operandi by Taylor Tomasi Hill. Similarly inspired by Mexican patterns, this Lulu Tulum Tunic from Calypso St. Barth is bold and festive.

From afar these palettes look similar, though up close, you’ll notice the subtle differences- saturation, balance and variation…one’s rather commercial with wide appeal while the other’s riskier with a more paired down palette, can you guess which is which?
