I also like the illustration's nods of darkness for it is a complex color palette that calls to me right now: from the aubergine eggplant hues of my old flannel sheets to my new cable knit sweater the color of the darkest spruce needles I'm drawn to the shadows behind the fiery leaves. Mustards and umbers, carmines and mauves, greens so deep and muddied they look grey and vice versa... riches layered upon riches! Fabrics of substance and intricacy come to mind: wool and flannel, lace and canvas. It's the type of fall that screams for oxblood leather accessories (nothing creamy pale please) and the deepest dijon suede. It is a time for blood red mums and burnished ambition.
