I came to calling it pamplemousse (grapefruit), after finding inspiration in the windows of Hugo and Victor.

not a great picture sadly, as it's pas de photo at H&V
it looks a bit too pink
Pamplemousse was everywhere, in the shops
|Pamplemousse for little girls|
|Pamplemousse for little boys|
|Pamplemousse for pregnant ladies|
|Pamplemousse for your feet|
|Head to toe Pamplemousse, for day|
|Pamplemousse scarves natch|
|Bags of Pamplemousse|
|Perhaps the prettiest Pamplemousse I saw|
little girl dresses on sale at Galeries Lafayette
|or the bridges (Pont des Arts)|
|Worn by flower toting men|
|and by women|
|Even the tourists were in on the Pamplemousse action|
Pamplemousse was everywhere.
|At the supermarket|
|In the Jardin du Luxembourg|
|At Au Nom de la Rose|
|Les stylos de pamplemousse|
|Les livres de pamplemousse|
|Even inside the ET for my birthday lunch|
at Le Jules Verne
there were bags of Pamplemousse on display

Emerald did really turn out to be a big colour last year, and so did the red-orange "tangerine tango" the year before.
Red-orange "tangerine tango"! Could it be? Yes it was. Pamplemousse! I think I like the name pamplemousse better than tangerine tango to be honest. So even though pamplemousse was the colour of 2012 I'm certain that's why I saw it in Paris in 2013 (and am still seeing it even now on the streets in Australia).
