Color Of The Moment: Fordite

Don’t be fooled: fordite is not a type of rock. It’s actually paint for cars that has been layered and layered and layered until it hardened into stratified colors. It’s a future stone, something completely unnatural imitating the natural.

The stones (“stones”) are the product of creative recycling and they feel particularly aligned with a Fall fashion palette. Since car colors are deep and inherently polished, you get the glossiness of a dew colored leaf on wet grass. Fordite stones have an ironic outdoor elegance: they have golden ambers, swamp watery green blues, sky blue and sky grays, and the lifecycle of a poppy, from bright red to dull yellow to decomposing brown. Fordite is many colors; thus, it should be our Color Of The Moment.

Naturally, these fake rocks are patterned too: when you slice into them, you get zig zagged colorful stripes, like plastic Missoni made by machine. That also reinforces fordites fall feeling: patterns this season have an order to them. Think holiday sweaters and blurry scarves, marbled sweats and paint splattered flannels: that’s what fordite is in fashion, the subdued tech cousin to lightning ridge opal.

So let fordite lead you this month. Put some bold colors together. Throw them in a pile and wear them like you are a rock made from car runoff. Add in a little shine, some chunky patterns, and plan on being a different way of color blocking. Swirl it all together for that fordite feel: let it be your Color Of The Moment.
