One of my favourite things about this time of year is how wonderful summer fruits suddenly become. Oh, you can get berries and grapes and oranges and melons all year round but, right now, they are beyond compare, bursting with flavor, and so very juicy – each one a sweet respite from the heat of summer.
For this colourway, we were inspired by one of my favourite summer fruits, the Honeydew melon. We started by capturing its sublime soft green, keeping the dye gentle and letting it swirl and flow in the dyepot to create the changing depth of colour that you see in the fruit’s flesh. And then we layered on the warmer shades of the melon’s center, blending it from a bright soft orange to a sweet clear yellow. The result is a beautiful fusion of summer’s best colours, which will flow and mingle into a sublime summer mix.
