[Designer’s Notebook: Color Workshop – Featuring Aubergine]
Stella Carakasi’s aubergine is a deep burgundy which warms against the skin casting radiant light onto any complexion. It’s a color both serious and romantic with a quality of noir that can be worn even during the day. Signifying royalty in the past, purple shades like aubergine, continue to add elegance to your wardrobe.
Aubergine, French for eggplant, is deep, dark purple with a slight brown hue. Combine it with shiny silver or inky black for a dramatic effect or add a pop of aubergine to white, soft grey or light neutrals to keep it modern, sleek and simple.
