Trend Watch: Pacific Blue is the “Must-Have” Resort Color for Spring-Summer 2013

The hottest trend color in resorts for Spring-Summer 2013 is what insiders call “Pacific Blue.”  This is not the typical Navy Blue of conservative business attire.  Pacific Blue is a soft, engaging color that reflects the boundless ocean and blue sky horizons.   With the upturn in the U.S. stock market and economy, the world is ready for a simpler, softer palette that evokes optimism and hope.The style watch color of Pacific Blue can be seen across several categories in perennial warm-weather havens like MiamiHawaii, and San Diego.

Trend Watch: Pacific Blue is the “Must-Have” Resort Color for Spring-Summer 2013

Martin & MacArthur stores throughout Hawaii have just introduced striking blue faces in its Limited Edition Series of solid wood watches.  The company regularly introduces small quantities of wood watches with face plates reflecting the key seasonal color.  It has two styles for men and one style for women.  Only 30 watches of each style have been crafted with this beautiful blue face.

Pacific Blue is evident in a new line of Koa Eternity Rings crafted with genuine Koa from the Big Island and Pau’a shell, known for its lustrous blue tones.  Martin & MacArthur introduced these blue Pau’a shell rings as a tribute to the bountiful ocean that enriches the island lifestyle.

The soft, alluring blue color is seen in many personal accessories throughout resorts this season.  Beautiful Hawaiian necklaces are made with Czech artisanal blue glass and exotic huawelaweka seeds, which have a soft velvety exterior coating.  

An exquisite new line of jewelry highlights the Pacific Blue color with Murano glass beads individually hand-crafted in Venice, Italy.  Artisans use sterling silver to combine the Murano glass beads with carved Koa wood pieces from Hawaii.  Matching bracelets and earrings are also available. 

Glass lovers will be in blue heaven this season as many glass artisans are leaping on the blue bandwagon and creating items specifically with the Pacific blue palette.  Martin & MacArthur has a treasure trove of genuine Hawaii-made glass items to enrich any home or office.  Choose from beautiful blue glass starfish, each measuring six-inches across.   

Or perhaps a blue glass plumeria will strike your fancy, crafted in Maui by a local Hawaiian glass artist. 

Whatever you fancy, Pacific Blue is the trend color you must have for Spring-Summer 2013.
