We know now where coffee comes from (if you haven't yet, check out Nikita Fall Collection: Colorstory Part I). The small plant that grows with green leaves and produces ripe, rich cherries that are harvested with eager attention and grows in tropical climates. That's coffee- that's where it starts.
But where does this lead us? To the drink, of course; the beverage that an entire industry has been born from- trade routes established and which is the drink of choice for many to wake up to in the mornings. That energizing enigma that inspires so many posts to people's social accounts, that thing that has turned being a barista from merely a side-job for young kids and college students into a life-long career of passion.
Black/White, coffee/cream- opposites attract p. Conny Marshaus
For the second half of our colorstory, we pull our inspiration from coffee & cream, the final product and perfect pairing of this plant. Finally! put the brew to your lips and sip. Energy abounds with bursts of color complementing the cherry tones and basic black, to round the collection out with a diverse palette that pops. Mesh textures offer a subtle play on burlap, and we introduce an accessory micro-collection with "light" or "dark" options.
The excitement and energy that flows from the colors in the origin of coffee translate over flawlessly into the subtle and cool tones of the final product. This is a collection that comes together for us in so many ways!
So grab your favorite mug, some and some cream (if you take it) and settle into autumn. Its going to be cool, crisp and energizing- a perfect pairing to our favorite fall beverage.
