Colour Code Tuesday: Classy Carmine

“Carmine” is a deep, rich red and has a purple undertone. Carmine is an exquisite colour – very Royal and very modish. It is certainly an attractive colour too. In my opinion, this colour looks best on larger pieces of fabric, or on more clean, simple linear designs; anything that is along the lines of Chanel’s pieces or Valentino’s. The feminine drama of carmine red is evident.
