In Praise of Gray


Often described as a color of scarce emotion, Gray is actually full of meaningful nuances. It is an eclectic but objective color from its coldest hues close to white to its deepest charcoal tones close to black. Gray is like a canvas, which allows you to paint to your hearts content. It is also the non-perceptible color of nature suggestive of misty fogs, extreme landscapes and unreachable horizons. It is the color of concrete and asphalt, the icon of metropolitan landscapes.

Heading into Autumn/Winter 2019/20, we see the grays as a key color for cars, paint, home textiles and interiors and second only to blue as the most popular color for menswear. Above all, grays serve as the perfect neutral base to work with all other colors, making for an especially compelling statement when illuminated by boreal light or strongly contrasted by synthetic or manmade brights.
