An eclectic, ethereal mix of understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals take center stage as designers draw from daydreams of simpler times. Remembrances of retro delights, folkloric and floral art, and the magical worlds of tropical landscapes restore a sense of wellbeing.
Pantone Color Institute on Spring 2015 Colors
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, says Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for next spring is inspired by a “growing movement to step out and create ‘quiet zones’ to disconnect from technology and unwind, giving ourselves time to stop and be still. Color choices follow the same minimalistic, ‘en plein air’ theme, taking a cue from nature rather than being reinvented or mechanically manipulated,” Eiseman adds. “Soft, cool hues blend with subtle warm tones to create a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.”
