Fashion file: This season’s colours

I’m sure you’re wondering about the “right” colours for the fall season, and what’s the latest from southwest France. Well, darlings, the answer is simple: yellow, brown, and the odd touch of orange.

Actually, those are pretty much the colours every year here in the Périgord Noir, as the landscape begins its annual pre-winter changeover. Unlike eastern North America, where the reds and strong oranges almost jump out of the forest, the look here is much more muted, primarily because we don’t have the sugar maples and other trees with those strong autumn colours.

Yellow seems to be "in" this season

It’s not dramatic, but it’s attractive all the same. See what you think:
