Color: Cobalt

Wonderfully rich, intense and refined, cobalt remains a dazzling fashion showstopper. The latest runway designs from Haider Ackermann, Léonard and Sacai display this gorgeously incandescent hue.

Michael O’Leary, account executive for McKlein Co. LLC (asi/70053), says cobalt is a fresh and dramatic color choice, no matter what the occasion. “Cobalt is a fresh and upbeat color that adds a touch of glamour to the office environment, while at the same time keeps yellow and red business casuals in step,” he says. “There’s something about this special hue that speaks of sophistication. Cobalt-blue accents in particular make a significant departure from the usual blues we’re used to seeing in the industry.”

Monika Rene, customer service representative at Bishop Garment Co. (asi/40585), is also a fan. “Cobalt blue is a striking hue that can add style and class to any outfit,” she says. “When worn with white, the vibrancy and liveliness of this hue is beautifully accentuated.”
