Fashion Week: Colorful Characters

from electric neons to rich earth tones, it’s no secret that we’re crazy for color—and our spring 2013 collection is no exception. we asked some familiar faces in the crowd to pick their favorite hue and (here’s the tricky part) name it anything they want in the world. check out their creative answers below…
“The amazing neon pink, I’d name it something like 'Highlighter'!”

—Caroline Issa, fashion director, Tank Magazine
(and J.Crew ad campaign star)
“I absolutely love the lilac. I’d call it 'Bowles Mauve'.”

—Hamish Bowles, international editor-at-large, Vogue
“The brown and the green in the men’s collection are great.
We’d call them 'Mahogany and Lawn'.”

—Chris and Kirk Bray, founders and designers of Billykirk
“The beautiful rich blue color, and I’d name it 'Lapis Blue' since lapis is my favorite stone.”

—Pamela Love, jewelry designer
“The emerald green immediately caught my eye and, since I’m
a jewelry designer, I’d name it 'Big Bauble Green'.”

—Lisa Salzer, Lulu Frost designer
