This year’s fall trend report headlines read MOD. From Rothko to Go-Go we’ve compiled our favorite vintage snapshots and current runway looks reminiscent of our very own “Color Block” Justine Scallop bag.

The recent revival of late 1960s textiles, graphic design, and vibrant color palettes can be seen in ready-to-wear shows by Valentino, Marni, and Louis Vuitton.

Bringing together Pantone Color of the Year selects Radiant Orchid, 2014, and Tangerine Tango, 2012 creates our most vibrant bag in stock, reminiscent of the Swingin’ Sixties daring combination. We’ve also spotted the hottest colors and Mod influence on some great designs and vintage inspiration shots:

Our own version of this psychedelic combination is overlaid with our signature art deco-inspired Scallop print in gold metallic, resulting in a unique piece that suits the trend, livens up any outfit, and avoids looking like a 1960s flight attendant.

    what a great post!
    It gives BiniChic’s color sense a new context. Love the fresh and bright–especially now that its high summer.
