Le Creuset's Newest Color Is the Perfect Hue for Spring

The Spruce / Kevin Liang

Iconic French cookware company Le Creuset just released their latest hue, shallot. The purple-gray is reminiscent of the innermost layers of — you guessed it — the member of the onion family of the same name.

Le Creuset is perhaps best known for its cerise shade (cherry red), but shallot is further proof that there's a Le Creuset color for everyone. The soft pastel hue that is shallot will remind you of early spring bulbs, the foil wrapping on a chocolate egg, and a hazy, dewy morning.
