It’s that time again! I love when the days start to get a bit longer, the days just a bit warmer, and the new colors of spring/summer start arriving in the shops. I had such a great response to my color articles from 2021, I am making this a regular seasonal article, with tweaks as needed (I just looked at my fall article and am impressed with your patience with me…that was really long!).

How it works: I pretty much spend all year keeping an eye out for what’s coming next; of course, as always, I’m going to say that PurseBlog is the best resource, but I’m happy to give you Cliff’s Notes version (or, rather, Pink’s Notes) so that it’s all in one place and you don’t have to wade through it all. Other information I obtain from my own personal interactions with the brand, close friends, social media – I’m always on the lookout. I build my lists of new and returning colors for leather goods and SLGs; it’s intended to be as comprehensive as possible, although there are always some surprises.

Then, because I started out buying scarves and I know a lot of you buy them as well to coordinate (or to, ahem, build up your pre-spend), I take a look at the color families being offered in the silks and cashmeres and then give you some ideas for the season. I’m still working on the best way to do this; clearly, Hermès is still doing color families, but I feel that they are phasing out the names and just using them as a guideline. Family names are no longer on the website, and the actual range of colors used in each family seems a lot broader than in past seasons. Therefore, this season I have loosely grouped the scarves by similar dominant colors and then coordinated with the leathers. You will see all of this information in part II of this article, coming soon!

What also struck me this season was that the scarf colorways really incorporated older, currently retired colors. For example, I saw a lot of Jaune Ambre in the scarves, yet I have not seen that color offered recently.

So, let’s jump in!

What Is New and What Is Returning

These are the new leather colors for this season, as many of you probably already know:

Shout out to Purseblog staff for updating the site’s logo with the Ukrainian flag. Fashion is and has always been political. Fashion can be a tool for justice.

Then why won’t they address how they remain quiet or do the absolute least to hold ra cist forum members accountable.not to mention the glaring racism in the Virgil posts that people keep using “creative disagreements” as a way to spout their casual rac ism.

Yes, calling him ape equals no liking his designs . It’s not racist at all /s

Some of you have no tact and it’s absolutely disgusting.

So we gotta stop the fight in US for racial equity because there’s a war with Ukraine and Russia? How disgusting of you

I think Vlad edited all the comments that were racist. Are you suggesting that there is a comment equating VA to an “ape” still published? That would be inappropriate obviously. None of us endorse that.

But I don’t see anything wrong with someone saying they don’t like the aesthetic of a brand or designer. Aren’t we allowed to have an opinion about fashion? Isn’t that what’s fun? The discussion, the debate… that’s why we all come here.

And calling people “disgusting” or “racist” in every post you write doesn’t promote healthy conversations and cultural growth. If you don’t treat people with respect, they won’t respect you back.

You are being ridiculously aggressive. Not everyone is your enemy. Somehow you feel entitled to comment on my post—which was celebrating something wonderful the Purseblog staff did—and immediately accuse everyone of being racist. We can all work for peace in Ukraine AND racial equity at the same time. You may not realize but those two things are not mutually exclusive.

Hi Molly, I try my best to sanitize problematic comments on PurseBlog and have deleted offensive comments on articles showcasing Virgil’s past collections. There may be some that slip through and I unintentionally miss them; I will find a way to give readers the ability to flag offensive comments. It would aid us in keeping the comment section civil, decent and free from offensive, harmful, and racist remarks.

I appreciate your efforts to delete offensive comments. However, there are frequently debates, like the one above, that take away from these posts. The first several comments were difficult to read because they were personal & aggressive. I understand & empathize with the issues discussed, but sometimes it’s nice to have a reprieve from the hotly charged political & racist debates. For a moment I forgot that this post was about the new Hermes colors once I got to the comment section. Anyway, I appreciate the hard work that you, Megs and your staff do & I enjoy reading the articles posted.

Not a nerd, just a well informed shopper. Hermes prices are exorbitant and it’s subjective re: if they are worth it, but for myself they are! I love my Birkin’s and Kelly’s!

I recommend fine jewelry, RTW, and scarves. Throw in some footwear, fashion jewelry and SLGs.

Is Cassis the new Raisin? They look very similar. Also, I purchased a Hermes Birkin 25 Ostrich in Gris Perle and it’s not as “purple” as the color shown here. It’s more of a Crae/Gris color. Is the lighting here making it appear more purple than it is?

Oh, yes! I know how difficult it is to capture Hermes colors. My camera doesn’t pick up their true beauty! I was commenting about the Gris Perle color because the one you posted looks more beautiful than mine.

I apologize if I’m belaboring the point, but I saw the Gris Perle 25 Ostrich Birkin in the 1st photo of “The Best Bags of Paris Fashion Week Fall 2022: Day 6” and that photo captures the color of my bag best. 😊
