Bold nautical greens of Oban's harbour

Oban

56.4123, -5.4891

A coastline of rugged and raw nature surrounds the tranquil port of Oban, protected by the Inner Hebridean islands of Mull, Coll and Tiree.

From above, a 19th-century crown of granite guards the skyline: McCaig’s Tower, built to resemble the Roman Colosseum. Below, cobbled streets lead to bespoke galleries, independent stores and a chocolate shop; the waterfront lined with troughs of fresh seafood.

At the heart of the town is the Oban Distillery, one of the only urban sites of its kind. Established in 1794 by brothers John and Hugh Stevenson, the whisky house came first, with the town rising up around it. To date, it is one of the oldest and smallest distilleries in Scotland.

The pairing of sea-green from the foreground water and red from the fishing boat centres this bold nautical colour combination. Such a wide range of chromas helps make Oban an ideal combination for a clothes collection.

The complementary gem-like qualities captured in the Oban palette exude luxury and sophistication with precious tones of emerald, ruby, amber and sapphire.

Combination in Application
