Spring Summer 2019 Colour Trend: Mustard Yellow, Black and White

Can we just say that Wiz Khalifa’s “black and yellow, black and yellow” broadly applies to this super-ripe SS19 trend that’s already trickling into our radar. Notice how yellow seems to have emerged as the new colour on the block (read: does anyone even care about ultra violet anymore?). From interiors to floral dresses, this hue is what’s bringing along brighter days! And no, it’s not your soft, buttery yellow; instead it’s mustard yellow that’s bold with a hint of spice (just how we like it). Think Pantone’s Lemon Curry. As for black and white, well, let’s just say, once a classic always a classic. Put the trio together and you’ll stir up a colour palette that’s just perfect to cue in spring and summer.


Spotted on the runway, this palette translates into colour-blocked ensembles married along with either simple geometric patterns for a mod-inspired look or hand-drawn florals for a feminine yet ultra modern look or both together because, why not? We’re definitely warming up the later (confessions from a print-obsessed team). Double the points to Vineet Bahl whose juxtaposed prints play out a perfect summer-time ensemble that comes with major style creds (obi belt et al). If strong and chic tailoring is your direction then take your notes from Albino Teodoro’s fall 2018 collection that is very modern yet understated, all at once. While the silhouettes are for colder days, we’re eyeing the colours and simple usage of geometric prints. If your focus is homegrown handloom styles, then Anju Modi’s “Swadeshi” collection is what’ll get you dreaming in this palette. It’s simply gorgeous.

While we know fashion will scoop up this combination faster than you can say 1,2,3, we’re keen on witnessing the outcome in the home furnishing market. Yellow couches, yellow walls or yellow furnishings… will this hue go bananas or will it simply replace gold as an accent colour? What’s your prediction?

Let us know sunshine.
