Have you seen these colors?
I often feel like the release of Pantone's colors of the next year is such an exciting moment. Not only for those fashionistas, or designers, or photographers, but for everyone looking for what to expect in trends the next year. Plus it keeps us on our game to help you stay current when we research for you!
In expressing our love for each color, we found some images to go along. Take a look!
Also, a little blurb from Pantone about each one :)
The soothing, calming nature of colors in the Spring collections are led by Rose Quartz, a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Rose Quartz reminds us to reflect on our surroundings during the busy but lighthearted spring and summer months.
Coming to the fore this Spring is, Peach Echo, a shade that emanates friendlier qualities, evoking warmth and accessibility. It is an all-encompassing, tempered companion in the playful orange family.
Weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, Serenity comforts with a calming effect, bringing a feeling of respite even in turbulent times.
A maritime-inspired blue, Snorkel Blue plays in the navy family, but with a happier, more energetic context. It is striking yet still, with lots of activity bursting from its undertones.
With Buttercup designers reveal a shining beacon transporting its wearer to a happier, sunnier place.
A shade of aqua that leans toward the green family, Limpet Shell is clear, clean and defined. Suggestive of clarity and freshness, its crisp and modern influences evoke a deliberate, mindful tranquility.
As in most any season, the need for neutrals arises. Essentially a basic, the subtlety of the lilac undertone in, Lilac Gray, adds a distinctive edge to this classic gray shade.
The high energy Fiesta is a harbinger of excitement, encouraging free-spirited exploration to unknown but welcoming locales. A strong and fiery, yellow-based red, the vivid Fiesta provides a stark contrast to the calming, softer nature of this season’s palette.
A transitional color that will take us through the seasons, Iced Coffee manifests as another strong neutral for the season. With its natural earthy quality, the softness and subtlety of Iced Coffee creates a stable foundation when combined with the rest of this season’s palette.
Green Flash calls on its wearer to explore, push the envelope and escape the mundane, radiating an openness that combines with the rest of the palette in unexpected but serendipitous ways. The popularity of this brilliant hue is representative of nature’s persistent influence even in urban environments, a trend continuing to inspire designers.
