Our Spring Issue No.86, now on shelf, looks at the colour gradient trend, captured so deliciously in the cake above. Colour gradient is the first cousin of colour blocking – showing how (for instance) colours like ballet pink, salmon, tangerine and russets can all live together.  We’re seeing examples of this trend everywhere – in decor as well as fashion.
