This Way to the Patch!

Thu, October 17, 2013


As you probably know if you follow Coton Colors at all, we love to celebrate everything! Each seasonal celebration and every family tradition serves as inspiration for our designs.

Our newest collection, Patch, is no exception. Every year in early October, our lead product designer {and Laura’s daughter} Kyle Johnson heads to the pumpkin patch for some autumn inspiration.

According to Kyle, it’s one of her favorite fall pastimes. “There is something exhilarating about the way the colors, shapes, textures, and smells come together. When I’m at the patch, it just feels like fall.” Kyle transferred that feeling into her designs for the Patch Collection. The details of the pumpkins inspired her to mix patterns. To Kyle, the warts looked like dots, the grooves seemed like stripes, and the chevron resembled the uneven surface of the skin. By combining traditional harvest hues like cobble, chestnut, brown and olive with updated patterns and an unexpected color pop from citrus green, she was able to create a modern line, perfect for season savvy entertaining. Of course, fall’s favorite gourd takes center stage in her chic creations. See the entire collection here.
