Courtesy of Fashion Snoops

On view the top women’s colors for the Fall/Winter 2017-18 season. Showcasing the strongest hues and color combinations as picked by the editors at Fashion Snoops from their five key palettes for women: Artist’s Clay, New Uniform, Cosmetics, Treasure and Amuse.

Emphasis is driven by the Artist’s Clay midtone palette, which addresses a continuation of retro modern hues like Potter’s Clay, Brittle and Goldenrod. There is also significant interest in the New Uniform neutral palette, driven by industry sensation Demna Gvasalia at Vetements and Balenciaga.
