Pumpkin Patch

Is orange really the new black? According to children’s spring collections, it just may be.

Perhaps it’s because the standout shade packs a seasonless punch; depending on the wattage, it can skew autumnal or scream summertime. Inspired by poppy shades of tangerine and punchy mandarin hues seen on Fall ’15 runways at Rag & Bone and Prabal Gurung, children’s designers take a more muted approach to the hue for spring. Instead of making a citrus splash, silhouettes are painted in sophisticated shades of coral and pumpkin. In fact, the gender-neutral color can be found punctuating neutrals, popping geometric prints and elevating basics from boring to brash. From bomber jackets to blankets, the resounding message is go bold or go home.
