A spicy shade of Cayenne combines brown with an orange tint, updating the staple shade with an autumnal Fashion Colour twist. A perfect shade for the fall wardrobe, Cayenne injects women’s styles with an alluring warmth and commercial appeal. In casualwear, this color adds a laidback look to pieces like utility coats at Opening Ceremony and manipulated dresses at Proenza Schouler, while sportswear inspires contrast trim at Lacoste and slogan scarves by Marc by Marc Jacobs.

An influential shade on the New York runways, designers demonstrate how Cayenne can be applied to luxury-based fabrications for a more sophisticated feel. Lurex fibres and silks create elegance in the form of ladylike dresses at Cushnie et Ochs, with monochrome color contrasts adding interest to winter layering at Adeam. Other highlights include plush fur jackets at Zac Posen and glossy reptile skin handbags at Proenza Schouler.
