Introducing Our Color of the Season: Sunbaked Mint

“The little things” are slowly coming back to us and we’re realizing just how big they were. Catching a bit of sunlight, seeing each others’ smiles, unplanned meetups. Mundane celebrations where reasons don’t matter as much as guests. This season, we’re reclaiming our right to cool off. To wonder and rest. To daydream.

Enter Sunbaked Mint, a blue-to-green hue that feels light and ethereal in ways we’ve missed. While we do have a code for this color, Sunbaked Mint isn’t meant to be exact. Just like light wears out every object in unique ways, our Color of the Season is truly a range of mints — all dyed beautifully by the sun. Spontaneity, not precision, is the key to this color and this season.

Combining the grounded character of green and the airy feel of blue, this neon pastel evokes everything summer 2021 is about: nostalgia, water, turquoise, seaglass, naiveté, and yes, mermaids.
