Cassis color

Started 1305731458.627 in Linea | Last reply 1305868807.807 by crdlb

I was thinking of waitlisting the knit pencil skirt in Cassis. Does anyone know exactly what shade that is? Thanks.

It's new. I hope it is a dark, dark violet red.

I would guess somewhere in the raspberry family since Cassis is a raspberry liqueur...

Not "exactly." but I did find a post by Louis on his blog back in February, in response to a customer's question about colors coming for fall-winter (2011-12):

"I am going to continue with Magenta, as the Roma Ponte jacket, sage, olive, aubergine, red, gray, cassis [which is a layering piece to go with the pearl/ribbon emb. jacket, so for those who own the suit, they will now be able to complete the look], fawn, which is a classic light beige riding pant color color, the mallard blue [which is a type of teal]. We will be having an extensive essential group in both the “Whisper knit” and the acrylic/wool [like the pencil knit skirt] which everyone is very excited about."

I think he refers to this jacket, A 94749. Video shows close-ups.

Not to be a know-it-all BUT Cassis is actually a black currant liqueur, which is why I guessed a dark violet red.

Cassis is certainly a sophisticated name for a color. It will be interesting to see what color it turns out to be because QVC isn't always very good with naming colors.

I believe it is a deep reddish plum.

I have the suit in the dark navy (with dark purple undertones) but the pearls and ribbon are a brighter, lighter plum color. Perhaps that is it.

I dont know exactly, but it's on my wait list!

I think that dark navy is called eggplant, which I think is close to cassis. He is also making a color next year in the short sleeve shell called deep plum, and a turtleneck called magenta--which I think is a brighter plum color.

Whatever color it is, it's on my wait list, too!

So I'm revising my guess to dark blue violet!
