This warm shade of Rose Champagne combines the previous seasons shades of Blush from S/S 15 and Dusty Rose from F/W 15/16. Creating a slightly more saturated pastel tone.
Bone continues the popular shade of Ivory from the F/W 15/16 season and the S/S 15 shade of Sand. This season Bone gets a softer yellow cast as opposed to the creamier shades of the previous seasons.
Lemon Chiffon evolves from the S/S 15 shade of Custard. This season becomes much softer, putting in the pastel category.
