  • Fashioning outdoor elements

    The fashion industry’s top designers dressed the runway with eye-catching, flirtatious colors and fabrics for their spring 2010 collections. Fashionistas were enamored with new trends, including neutral tones, metallic shades and all-American inspired pieces. Incorporate these fashion trends into shade solutions for your next outdoor design.

    Go nude
    Fashion designers Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs and Rachel Roy adorned models with soft fabrics in neutral colors nude, blush and light peach.

    Take this trend outside by creating an outdoor living space that features retractable awnings with neutral-color fabrics that complement the natural elements. Sunbrella® offers a line of performance awning fabrics, which includes several neutral-colored patterns. Sunbrella has a wide array of solids, stripes and patterns in various neutral tones.

    Stay gold
    Designers Jill Stuart, Derek Lam and Phillip Lim showcased flashy metallic dresses, skirts and accessories on the runway. Reflecting off the photographers’ flashes, the metallic outfits illuminated the show.

    It’s easy to incorporate metallic-colored fabrics into any outdoor living space. Main Street® + awning fabric includes Bronze and Copper colors that shimmer in the sun.

    Rock tradition
    American spirit was alive and well at the Alexander Wang and Anna Sui shows. All-American red, white and blue colors were combined with structure, stripes and fun.

    Add a touch of timeless tradition to an outdoor space with classic stripes and bold colors offered from the Sunbrella® Mayfield Collection®. Cool, deep tones contrasted with light neutrals create the ideal Americana look. Learn more.
