Whatever 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.
I 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.

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