‘Tan’ was such a part of growing up in the 70’s. In the 80’s I think it turned beige with all the Chanel madness at the time and by the 90’s and 00’s, tan had become a dirty word in a world of black or simple white, never to be uttered in polite circles, discontinued and hidden away. Well, I still love it and wanted it but boy, was it hard to find! Everyone I spoke to had a different shade in mind which made it even harder until I got totally confused myself! At one point I thought I meant ‘Camel’. The shade I always had in mind is neither too yellow nor too warm (pink) nor too brown – impossible!?A little too blond. This is more like it…..The One? This is the natural version of a leather called Chamonix and I was expecting it to be too pale. It is but that’s only because it’s vintage and needs conditioning to enrich the leather and colour.
