Color of 1998: The colors of 1998 were represented by warm comfertable colors. the palette moved from cool to warm and the five color groups of the year were, Poolside, Spa, Reef, Ruins and Cafe.
POOLSIDE is inspired by happy, splashy brights. However, they are sundrenched -not baked. Pinks and corals, two key colors, are joined by citrus orange. The season is also illustrated by mixing blues, especially soft aqua with a punched-up turquoise.
SPA reflects the space between the sea and sky; meditative, therapeutic, aquatic colors. There is a mixing of brights, midtones, darks and pales. Light, mineral purple and rich fountain purple are key colors. Blue is probably the most important family, and is mixed in different casts and hues.
REEF is cheerful; never dull or discordant. It is characterized by a mixture of hot, passionate, robust reds -- synonymous with love and romance -- and Chinese culture, luck and happiness. Coral and mollusks are extensions of the important brick and terra-cotta colors, but are now more peach-like. Greens in the group are clean, clear and austere, while gray is a key color for women's wear, especially when worked with blues and purples.
RUINS bring the old world into the new. Golds and blues are important, especially in women's wear. Brown, less reddened and more mellow, is a staple, an accepted alternative to black and navy.
CAFÉ is inspired by a warm, comforting and naturally harmonious color environment. One key trend in this group is a mixing of pales and neutrals, as well as the continuation of warm beiges, which are more peachy in tone. Complementary colors in the group are mocha and bright lemon.
