The New Neutrals

There is a contradictory status about the colour grey or gray, after some research it seems in America we use gray and abroad they use grey. No matter the spelling I am convinced the the colour is a power player in todays’ montage of neutrals.

According to Kate Smith “Gray is the color of intellect, knowledge, and wisdom. It is perceived as long-lasting, classic, and often as sleek or refined. It is a color that is dignified, conservative, and carries authority.” It also unsettles your current situations and creates expectations. Gray is controlled and inconspicuous and is considered a color of compromise, perhaps because it sits between the extremes of black and white. Gray is a perfect neutral, which is why designers often use it as a background color.

Some of our favorite picks from the collage of outerwear in our new neutral grey or gray.
