Orange you glad I didn’t say Tangerine Tango?

Crayola Crayons and Orange colored Italian leather glovesWhatever happened to simple normal color names like orange, black, blue?   I came to a rude awakening while coloring with my nieces and nephews this holiday season when we opened a brand new box of Crayola Crayons. (Do you remember the excitement of getting to use the colors for the very first time?  Ahh, the memories,  one of my all time favorite colors was periwinkle – a shade of  blue for those of you who don’t know).

Anyway I digress, I was searching through the colors looking for periwinkle and came up with the color eggplant.

Safety orange clothing and leather jacketsI ask you, whatever happened to periwinkle blue?  Now you have colors like wild strawberry and tangerine tango!  How many of us have ever even seen a wild strawberry? … I was 28 when I saw my first “wild” strawberry…. I recently read that the smell of Crayloa crayons was one of the most recognized scents for adults, but would they recognized a Crayloa crayon called asparagus?

Working with our 10 shades of Italian style, we are on our 4th installment of colorful leather gloves for women and men from the Pierotucci sample glove collection.  10 styles in 10 shades of orange … go0d  –  old-fashion … orange.  This rich shade colored 2012 and all the major catwalks during fashion week and lined designer shelves left and right.  And it is still present this year, especially for the men . .  but of course you wouldn’t get a guy wearing tangerine tango, and thus it has been renamed,  “safety orange.”

In any case here is a sampling of the orange colored gloves in leather and suede from Pierotucci:
