FAMILY

Buy this issue
viewzines.com

The concept of family taps into our tribal instinct, it speaks of community and teams. It also implies a space where something is shared, a place where there is a link that connects in a visible way the different elements of a group. In times when individualism seems to prevail in our society, the idea that we are all part of something, is one of the most appreciated - and perhaps, needed - feelings we have at this moment.This idea of a group of linked yet disparate individuals is explored in our palettes for Autumn/Winter 2025/26. Duality, young and old, immature and mature, is at the core of our new colour card, not only in our specific colour stories but also in the card as a whole.

GATHERING

Like a flock of birds, a crowd of people, a herd of animals, we see colour as an organic, constantly evolving thing, made up of many different shades that are laid over one another, creating blurred and indistinct shapes.

HUGGING

In a world that often feels distant and rushed, there's an art to hugging that speaks to our deepest desires. Just so, our colours from different families harmonise beautifully with a soft smoky effect. (Image: Tracey Smith)

Genetics

A palette of new pale greys that is impregnated with mineral mauves and sand tones. The range can also integrate metallic reflections that enhance the soft look with a precious technicality consistent with the biological inspiration behind our concept.

Family tree (patriarch)

With its roots firmly planted in the earth, the family tree stands tall, passing along family traditions from one generation to the next, expanding slowly like the rings of a tree, standing steady and safe as the years go by. Colours pay homage to this ancient origin.

Matriarch (blood lines)

The comforting colours of motherhood that express generosity, love, and comfort. Warming and soft, inspired by maternal care and the unbreakable love of family bonds, our palette emanates and reflects the emotion of touch and safety. (Image: Rima Day)

Belonging

Like a flock of birds, a crowd of people, a herd of animals, we see colour as an organic, constantly evolving thing, made up of many different shades that are laid over one another, creating blurred and indistinct shapes.

Kinship

This colour quartet is defined by a look that is pigment dense and vibrant, reflecting a nature-based intent. They are familiar colours, suggesting a connection to clan, kith, and kin. (Image: Seamus Ryan)

Team

An active red, a vintage yellow, a stalwart navy and a grass green represent four pillars of collegiate colour. They are all trusted, recognisable shades that have represented sport and fitness through decades of use. (Image: Pexels)
