Who Needs Fashion Week When Pantone Already Knows Spring's Biggest Colours?
Before the first model walked the runway at New York Fashion Week, the colour trends for Spring 2015 were already set in stone. Or better yet, set in swatches. The Pantone Color Institute announced the 10 key shades that will make up Spring's style palette, and it's looking to be a pretty cool season ahead.
"Colour choices follow a minimalistic theme, taking a cue from nature rather than being reinvented or mechanically manipulated," Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone's executive director, whose team researched designer sketches and upcoming collections to create their seasonal report, said. "Soft, cool hues blend with subtle warm tones to create a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle."
From aquamarine — an airy, ethereal blue – and a light coral-toned strawberry ice to the soft lucite green, notable designers are already putting these colours to use, as evidenced by this season's sketches. So say goodbye to the official colour of 2014, and welcome these hues into your wardrobe.
