Now that everyone from Michael Kors to Donna Karan has declared opulent orange to be the hot new fashion color for 2012, don’t you wonder where they got the idea?
Orange is in this year! Top fashion designers including Michael Kors, Cynthia Rowley, Max Azaria and Donna Karan have all made this hot new color a big part of their Spring 2012 ready to wear collections. Pantone, the color authority for designers around the world, has even declared that Tangerine Tango is the 2012 color of the year.
Where do you think all these designers discovered the opulence of orange? They might have just looked at their wrist. Many of the world’s most popular wristwatches were incorporating this color in their designs long before the fashionista’s discovered it.
Maybe these designers noticed the sporty looking orange Haurex Caimano. This spectacular Italian design features a two-tone orange color scheme with a dark orange dial and lighter orange plastceramic case and strap. This distinctive 45mm diver style is powered by a quality quartz movement and is water resistant to 100 meters.
It is just as likely that they might have seen something in the innovative new Haurex Ink collection. These beautiful watches feature colorful anodized aluminum cases in a wide variety of colors, including a spectacular women’s Ink model in bright orange.
