Colour Spectrum A/W 19/20

We identify primary influences for Autumn/Winter 2019/20 by collating the latest directional projects from across the creative industries, art, technology and science. Contributions from our global colour specialists and researchers ensure the international relevance of each colour direction.

This research is distilled into four themes, with each one highlighting influential projects and featuring an edited colour palette. This season's themes are Playful Optimism, Evolving Landscapes, Sacred Earth and Reimagined Histories. Quick-reference keywords support each theme, along with a moodboard and guidelines for colour application.

The Stylus Spectrum is a palette of 48 inspirational yet practical colours, including metallics and lustres for application across the design industry. To trace the development of these hues and tones over several seasons, see our Colour Spectrum Evolution. Here, we also highlight important colour themes that will have a strong resonance across the design industries for A/W 19/20.
