For those living in temperate zones, this is the final weekend of winter! Spring appears next week and I am excited!

Deep, smokey colours are making way for soft pastels and OCC is bringing out their new Sci-Fi inspired Spring collection.  Metallic pastels!!! Swatches as soon as I get them!!

Here’s some more information:

Introducing SCI-FI LULLABIES, OCC’s newest colour collection for Spring 2013! Spring has always been a time for transformation, and this season we explore the dichotomy between two realities: What is truth and what is fantasy. Showcased alongside Ready-To-Wear shades are fantasias of Couture Colors designed to transport you to your idyllic designation, whether it’s firmly planted on the Earth or exists only on an unexplored off-world colony. Inspired by the Science Fiction Genre, this collection of metallic shades will make on-lookers question if you are human…or more human than human.
