Mint.

Nov 11, 2012


"Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises." - Pedro Calderon de la Barca
~
The quote above is certainly not speaking of the use of the color in fashion, but rather of world and it's greenery and nature. However, just as green defines the earth and its beauty, mint green is making a refreshing appearance across in fashion. My favorite high-street stores around Singapore have been displaying their newly-created mint-green merchandise in racks and store windows for the past few months. As H&M and Cotton On are bringing the pastel hue into their latest collections, the color phenomenon is making its way to runways, too. Peter Som, Donna Karan, and Cushnie et Ochs have incorporated the shade into their Spring/Summer 2013 collections in many different ways. The runway shots above depict just how versatile mint can be. Each silhouette is, of course, completely unique in its own way, but the color itself is shown in many different variations. Peter Som's crisp, young collection was reflected in the subdued blue tone while Cushnie et Och's had an electric, Tiffany-esque shade, more on the blue side than the mint. The color has a soothing, playful effect and can, evidently, be more in many different ways.

Shown above are six different mint-green options, all from the amazing high-street retailer, H&M. As I set out to write this post, I scoured dozens of online stores, but was shocked to see how many options one brand had. H&M had more than a few tops in mint shades, from cozy, pistachio-colored  sweaters to a flirtatious, feminine tank-top with a hint of lace. Obviously, if the mega brand has delivered its thousands of fans with this many mint choices, the color is here to stay. What do you think of mint green?
