FW22/23: WGSN and Coloro's colours of the season

WGSN and Coloro’s FW22/23 colours of choice blend timelessness and
positivity while reflecting a close link to nature. The trend
forecasting agency and universal colour system have partnered one more
time to select the hues that will shape the next winter season, and
they all embody a grounding feeling. From soothing green and vibrant
blue to soft yellow and intense brown, FashionUnited has rounded up
everything you need to know about these new and innovative shades.


Emotion appears to be a key element of the next season, with
consumers still looking for a sense of normalcy and ideas that keep
them grounded. This soft yellow hue provides warmth and uplifts our
moods with its golden and ochre tones. While honey dates back to
Ancient Egypt, its colour is revisited today and nods to our close
link with nature, highlighting its necessary preservation. Honeycomb
can be used on its own or paired with other tonal and brown shades,
especially for accessories and activewear. It’ll particularly pop up
on metallic and glossy textures.

Dark Oak

WGSN and Coloro had forecast deep brown hues to take over the
FW19/20 and 21/22 collections, and it’ll remain one of the key colours
for the 22/23 season. According to the agencies, it reflects the
current challenging times and need for a slower fashion industry. A
natural evolution of the tinted black shade of FW21/22, it’s inspired
by dark antique details and the notion of longevity. Whether it’s on
shoes, garments or accessories, Dark Oak will be one of the recurring
shades next winter.

Lazuli Blue

Designed to reflect small luxuries, Lazuli Blue’s rich tones are
inspired by precious ultramarine pigments and the mineral quality
associated with them. It’s particularly appealing for the season ahead
as its saturated hue nods to the inception of colour, which is a
recurring inspiration in trends this season. It’ll be especially
fitting for cosy fabrics as well as glass and shiny surfaces.


Jade embodies the idea of mental and physical health, an idea
that’s been prevalent over the last couple of years. Imagined as a
trans-seasonal colour, it has blue undertones that stand for calmness,
timelessness and wisdom. While it’ll be a good choice for the fashion
industry, the agencies have forecast its success in the beauty world
as well thanks to its balancing nature and everlasting appeal.

Orchid Flower

Already the colour of the year 2022, Orchid Flower will easily
transition from the SS22 to the FW22/23 season. It’s ideal year-round
and embodies precious gifts from nature as well as small luxuries,
just like Lazuli Blue. This particular shade of pink is inspired by
the orchid plant and will work nicely on fuzzy materials and
reflective surfaces alike. It’s fitting for the digital world too and
will be a key hue of the holiday season for both the fashion and
beauty industry.
