A few commenters asked specifically for colors that coordinate with our new lines. While we don't necessarily produce our Konas to match new collections, with over 200 colors there's a very good chance you can always find a color that works. For the collections that we think work well with Kona, we've loaded the separate colorstories right into our website! Just above each collection view, you'll see this option:
When you choose to view by colorstory, you'll see the exact coordinates our Design Dept. handpicked to work with the line. For Amanda Murphy's Ambrosia, there were more than a few Kona colors that coordinated beautifully:
Whenever you see Kona coordinates in the colorstory view, you can trust that we've picked a perfect fit!
