The Eau de Nil Edit

#FORTNUMSCHRISTMAS

 

If you’ve ever visited our Piccadilly Store you’ll know we aren’t afraid of a little colour… From the deep red of our velvet carpet to the glistening gold gilding of the chandeliers, there’s one colour that tops them all at Fortnum’s – Eau de Nil.

 

Our unmistakeable signature colour for decades, this bright blue-green is immediately discernible to the eye as Fortnum’s – a beautiful hue that evokes a calm, soothing feeling. Over three centuries later, Eau de Nil has proven to be eternally chic and brilliantly versatile.

 

Inspired by the east, especially the flowers and fabrics of India, this ‘new’ colour was recreated by 18th century designers and has been a part of our palette since the beginning. Evolving over time and eventually becoming the Fortnum’s house colour, from use as the exterior paint colour in the 1840s to flourishes in its 1950s Christmas catalogues, as background colour to the landmark clock outside our Piccadilly store, and ultimately to packaging for product.

 

We love the fresh hue so much that it practically touches everything from our famous Food Halls right up to the top in our Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon.

 

We hereby state that Eau de Nil is the new black, because what could possibly be black about a Friday at Fortnum’s? Well, maybe the tea...
