Colour of the Year 2017

When the colour gurus at Pantone announced their colour of the year as 'Greenery' we all got a little excited here at Violet & Wren HQ! 

"A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate."

Luscious foliage and bold botanicals are our constant inspiration, and shades of green consequently always take their place on our moodboards each season.   From the tropical mint green of our debut 'Glasshouse Palm' print, to the zesty lime in last summers 'Sicilian Tulip', there is no denying we have a penchant for these luscious hues!


Leatrice Eiseman of Pantone captures exactly why green is such an important colour in the modern palette - with turbulent times ahead, the colour green will always speak to our most basic instincts and, helping us to relax and re-connect with the natural world around us, and re-evaluate the most important things in our lives.


So, embracing the colour of the year, and with the thought of cocktails never far from our minds,  our latest collection, HAVANA, captures Pantones 'Greenery' in a mouthwatering lime toned green, 'Mojito'. A soft yet vibrant hue, we have combined our gorgeous green with a pale ivory French lace in a stunning lingerie set - green, soft cup bralette and high waist briefs all combine together ticking off three of this years key trends -  your ultimate SS17 lingerie set is here!


The HAVANA collection is now available in our online store and internationally with our fantastic family of stockists including Journelle (NYC), Estnation (Tokyo), Revolve (online) and Fenwick of Bond Street (London) - drop us an email at for more details.
