dievca was fascinated by the faux wood and the ability of people to walk in Candie’s Sandals.
Dr. Scholl’s  were bad enough!

dievca honored via Pantone 2021

Cariuma Brasil Pantone 2020 Colors

If you asked dievca what her favorite colors are – she’ll answer “Grey and Yellow” This has been true since her childhood in the 1970’s. Master started laughing when the 2021 Pantone Colors of the Year showed up.

So it should be a surprise to no one that the prognosticators at Pantone — those trend forecasters who scour the globe for months noting developments in clothing, cars, kitchens, coffee (the stuff that surrounds us) and translate it into a color they claim will be the dominant shade of the coming year — have chosen, as the color of the year for 2021 … two colors!

Which does not represent indecisiveness, but a metaphor. Get ready for Ultimate Gray and Illuminating. Or, in normal-speak: the light at the end of the tunnel.

Vanessa Friedman – The New York Times

As for those retro Cariuma Tennis Shoes above? The Brazillian Brand which hops on to the Pantone colors, yearly? dievca isn’t sure she has room for her two favorite colors….hmmm…maybe she has to make room. XO

“Illuminating” and “Ultimate Gray” are Pantone’s 2021 Colors of the Year. via Pantone
