Although the Essie Fall 2014 Collection came out in August, I still want to share the press release because it contains information about each colour that some readers may find useful.
Also, in this press release, I’ve included a little note from Essie Weingarten (the Founder and Global Creative Director of Essie), as well a photo of her.
It’s always exciting to see the face behind the brand and to know the creative process behind a project. It breathes more meaning and helps you to appreciate the finished result that much more.
Plus PR sent me a photo of a cool linear ombre nail-art design created using colours from the Essie Fall 2014 Collection, so I’ve included that (and the instructions for how to replicate it) as well!
Which are your top picks from this collection, and have you already got your hands on some of these? If so, which ones?
Below is the official press release sent to me by PR:
Live dangerously. Dress flawlessly. Inspired by espionage and the thrill of the chase, the fall palette delivers shades so chic it’s almost criminal. Now is the time for dramatic, intriguing colour that plays up your mysterious side with deep, saturated tones. What’s the secret password into this tangled web of under-the-radar style? If you have to ask, darling, well…it’s essie, of course!
essie’s fall palette is a compelling collection of highly complementary hues that work beautifully together and make a serious style statement all on their own. Dazzling, rich autumnal red feels daring, racy and is sure to quicken pulses everywhere. Novel inky cobalt, providing added colour, depth and spellbinding beauty, makes an edgy alternative to office-issue navy. Traditional gray is laced with green and teal and undertones for a tantalizing effect, creating the perfect smokescreen for subtle subterfuge. Seasonal staples mahogany and taupe, are ideal neutrals that work with any fashionable fall frock.
I spy with my fashionable eye, a seductive new partner in crime. Mysterious and alluring, she knows exactly how to dress to kilt. My sources in the style cartel tell me that this season, shades with a splash of intrigue are the perfect cover up. Oh, you beg to differ? Well, darling, you’d be wise to fall in line or we’ll just have to take it outside.
partner in crime – rich dark chocolate
fall in line – enigmatic jade green
style cartel – inky cobalt blue
dress to kilt – seductive red
the perfect cover up – powerful peacock teal
