Sock Candy and Dunn-Edwards Launch Happiness-Inducing Holiday Capsule Collection
The fashion-forward trio of socks illustrates how the 2023 Color + Design Trends identified by Dunn-Edwards translate beyond paint.
Los Angeles, CA – November 10, 2022 – Dunn-Edwards today announced a partnership with Los Angeles-based Sock Candy, a color-forward fashion sock brand that celebrates unconventional personal style. Available starting today, the Sock Candy x Dunn-Edwards Trends Holiday Collection features three sock designs that incorporate colors featured in the Live in Joy palette within the Dunn-Edwards 2023 Color + Design Trends.
The 2023 Color + Design Trends blend elements of the past, present, and future, with high impact and nostalgic colors making a joyful comeback. Live in Joy, one of four palettes in the campaign, brings optimism to the extreme, featuring graphic brights and fresh pastels that create a playful, celebratory feel.
“We are ecstatic to be partnering with Sock Candy. Their appreciation for color and whimsy aligns beautifully with the trends we’ve identified for the 2023 year ahead and beyond,” says Sara McLean, Dunn-Edwards Color Expert and Stylist. “This collaboration is a fun way to translate the bold colors and energetic vibe of Live in Joy outside of the context of paint.”
Designed to be paired with sandals and heels, the three happiness-inducing sock designs – Y2K Hearts, ‘80s Disco, and Figure Skater Shimmer – were produced by Sock Candy’s design team and draw inspiration from specific colors in the Live in Joy palette:
