Marsala is the New Black Just in Time for Valentine's Day

Back in 2014, when we were in the midst of creating our concealed carry luxury collection, we knew we would always have two core colors - black and brown. We would introduce one, maybe more, fashion colors per season. After some debate, we choose a marsala color, a deep maroon as our main fashion color. 

Today, the color authority Pantone announced that Marsala was the color of the year! Did we call or did we call it?

According to Pantone: The Versatility of Marsala

  • Equally appealing to men and women, Marsala is a stirring and flavorful shade for apparel and accessories, one that encourages color creativity and experimentation
  • Flattering against many skin tones, sultry and subtle Marsala is a great go-to color for beauty, providing enormous highlight for the cheek, and a captivating pop of color for nails, shadows lips and hair.
  • Dramatic and at the same time grounding, the rich and full-bodied red-brown Marsala brings color warmth into home interiors
  • An earthy shade with a bit of sophistication, texture is the story in print and packaging. A matte finish highlights Marsala’s organic nature while adding a sheen conveys a completely different message of glamour and luxury.
