Explore Shades of Incognito

27 August 2019

Shades of Incognito is a sanctuary from the digital way of living and a celebration of the analogue.

Seamless connectivity has for years contributed to a digital overshare of our lives where the enormous process of gathering data about our online behavior, lifestyles, choices and preferences is going on every second of the day. It’s all about big and smart data.

However, this has now evolved to instead embrace our privacy, and the search for well-being, to live off the grid and go incognito.

A NEW TYPE OF VEIL

Shades of Incognito is a sanctuary from the digital way of living and a celebration of the analogue. Escaping into the shadows, this trend represents a new type of veil, mixing light and transparent material such as silk, smoke-coloured glass and linen.

THE COLOUR PALETTE

Inspired by the effects of the materials, Shades of Incognito presents a tranquil layered colour palette ranging from rich brown to warm beige and light grey. A palette of neutral and softer-looking colours with low chromaticness.
