The Aspinwall Pullover shows how a narrow value range can be used for subtler, quieter effects, even when using highly contrasting colors: Though the orange and acid green are intense, they are wearable when set into a background band only a little lighter in value. Incorporate intense pops of color in unexpected places with this trick.
