I suppose it may seem strange to be inspired by honey and then have it face off against food. After all, honey is a food, or at least something you eat! However, compare the two we will.
Honey Inspiration – Fashion vs Food – Warm: You will recognize the honey inspired colour palette and both the looks in this collection. Notice that the original colour palette, the clothing and the food all have earthy yet intense tones. I imagine the honey drizzled mushrooms and the honey chicken are warm and comforting with a touch of sweet, just like the colour palette they represent. I find it interesting that I get the same emotion from the clothes, even though one of them is clearly a look for the warmer months, I think of warmth when I look at it. Amazing the power of colour and the emotions tweaked, whether used in clothes or in food.
Honey Inspiration – Fashion vs Food – Cool: This is the colour palette I was using when I was first starting to look for images based on the honey inspiration. And although once I found the warmer version these were a few images I still wanted to share. In part to show the cooler side of the honey inspiration. For those of you who can’t wear the warmer tones but are lucky enough to be able to wear more yellow and mint colours. I do like the nudes, pale yellows and golds with a hint of mint to keep them fresh and current.
As you know I am not much of a pastel wearer but think that I might like mint if done properly. I like the small hits of it in the bracelets of the top left photo. This hit of mint is also seen in the pistachio biscotti and even the necklace above.
As the pastel trend evolves it is being seen more and more with neutrals and nudes, so this honey inspired colour palette should be great inspiration to us all!
Looking at all this honey inspiration in fashion and food is starting to make me hungry.
I think tomorrow I’ll have to share a couple of honey based recipes!
