Colour & Inspiration
This deep, dark colourway was inspired by Philip Pullman's Northern Lights, and by Lyra's journey to the icy north in the company of Gyptians, witches and armoured bears. The journey is dark, frightening, mysterious and wonderful. It's filled with deep blacks and bright aquamarines, and calls to mind the icy darkness and haunting lights of the far north.
