Tangerine Coral takes inspiration from the heady appeal of summer sunsets with an Indian slant. The vibrant sub-tropical shade is applied onto uncomplicated modern shapes for a grown-up appeal. Add color-based impact to the minimalist revival through clean, fluid dresses and separates, as well as unlined envelope clutches and other understated accessories.

Combining Tangerine Coral with vintage chiffon or lace overlays and demure feminine detailing results in youthfully elegant summer party dresses. Spots of futuristic neon orange or surgical white highlights keep the look fresh.
