With OPI recently sharing images of their Spring 2011 Texas Collection, and China Glaze Anchors Away Spring 2011 Collection promo pics and color wheels out for us to look at, I wondered if there were any hints as to what Essie had in store for us. I didn't find too much information on the subject, but I did come across this little mention on Pantone's web site from Essie Weingarten:
"Paris. It seems an obvious choice, as it is one of the historic centers of fashion, but there was a large move away from the influence of Paris in the ‘90s in favor of the sweeping globalism that transfigured the world. I think there has been an inevitable return to Paris. Paris means many things to many people, but for me, it is the city of feminine romance!
We are seeing Parisian sensibility in everything right now – fashion, design, literature – you name it. In fact, my spring 2011 collection is heavily influenced by French glamour. This spring will blossom in shades of Antique Roses, Pretty Beiges and Alluring Blues. Metallics, once seen as déclassé, are again becoming de rigueur. Fabulous yet subtle metallics and iridescents for spring are surprising twists on classics, yet still very demure and charming. Springtime is always the time for a beautiful breath of fresh air."
We'll have to wait and see what that all translates to, but the "Alluring Blues" and "iridescents" sound very promising to me!
