new mini-trend: purple

by Grace Bonney

it’s no secret that purple seems to be all the rage in fashion right now, but, much like fashion, design seems to be following the purple trend as well. as i start to receive spring and summer 2008 press releases i’m noticing that all shades of purple are popping up- ranging from soft, powdery lavenders to deep, rich royal purples. so i thought i’d make a roundup of my favorite purple pieces in the market, ranging from affordable to splurge-worthy. you can view the full roundup right here or click “read more” below to see the complete post and all 12 photos. enjoy!
