Wine is the New Black


When a fashion brand makes a piece in several colors, there are a handful of standards that tend to get made. These include neutrals like black, white, and grey as well as classic colors like red and yellow. For 2011, however, a deep burgundy color is showing up among the standards.
The hue, which some might also call maroon, is definitely not a perennial favorite. In fact, it seems to go through long periods of ostracizing by fashion-conscious dressers. Benjamin Moore calls it “Vintage Wine” and it’s receiving sweeping favor in interiors and design circles as well. In fashion it’s been a couple decades since this color was really hot and the time lapse has made it look fresh and modern from the runway to the rack to the sidewalk.
