Purple Reign

Deep plums, eggplant, açai, grapes, berries, magenta, lavender, or violet, as long as it can be considered a shade of purple it is hot for fall 2013.

These luscious shades of purple in high and low contrast offer depth and variety & wearability for both fall fashion and fall makeup.


Even the runways were saturated in purple shades—everything from trouser suits to cocktail dresses, handbags, ankle boots and clutches are trending purple for autumn/winter 2013.




Christopher Kane, Prada and Gucci all carpeted their venues in this arresting shade for regal impact.



On a beauty note, runway models in Roberto Cavalli’s show were wearing  washes of purple on their eyes.


NARS launched their splurge-worthy Fall 2013 Color Collection in gorgeous rich shades of purple for nails, lips & eyes.

Kalahari Duo Eyeshadow (right side): Sugared cocoa

  1. What a fabulous post covering this season’s purple obsessions! I love how we’ve moved to the opposite spectrum of the pale washes and pastels and we’re doing full on, intense like you mean it, deep plums and wines. Go bold or go home, love!! xx
