For color theory nerds like us, Pantone is our chroma Bible. And rightfully so. For over 50 years, Pantone has set the tone (all double entendres intended) and been the design industry’s authority on color. Pantone recently declared Marsala the color of 2015. And it looks like they’re right. Did you see all of the wine colored items in #thenewbr collection for fall/winter 2015? We love it!
Although next season’s fall/winter clothes are already on our radar, spring is right around the corner. And the thought of light weight jackets, new pant lengths, and colorful patterns has us excited for these warmer temps.
Want to know the colors you’ll be seeing this spring? Pantone has titled this collection, “En Plein Air”—that’s French for “In the Open Air” and is particularly used to describe the artistic act of painting outdoors. Here is this color collection with links to the respective Pantone color page:
The theme of “En Plein Air?” Lots of muted and iced hues. Think frosted mineral-like pastels paired with vibrant yellows, pinks, and beige. If you want to see the full report, head on over to hear Leatrice Wiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute talk about these spring colors, where designers are pulling their inspiration from, and what a new color palette means for your wardrobe.
