Pantone's Fashion Color Report for spring 2013
Pantone recently released its Fashion Color Report Spring 2013 featuring the top 10 colors for women’s and men’s fashion. These colors seem to offer a sense of balance, a mix of novel neutrals and light and bright.
“The expression ‘balancing act’ is something we all relate to as we strive to find harmony in the frantic pace of our everyday lives,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “The same can be said for fashion as we look for balance between light and bright, classic and new. This season’s color palette emphasizes this need for balance, while at the same time allowing for individuality, self-expression and excitement.”
The top colors for women’s fashion for spring 2013 are:
PANTONE 14-0446 Tender Shoots
PANTONE 14-6011 Grayed Jade
PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald
PANTONE 16-3520 African Violet
PANTONE 17-1664 Poppy Red
PANTONE 16-1360 Nectarine
PANTONE 13-0756 Lemon Zest
PANTONE 16-4120 Dusk Blue
PANTONE 12-1008 Linen
PANTONE 19-3964 Monaco Blue
Here’s how Pantone breaks down the colors:
The prevalence of green this spring is undeniable. Similar to the many shades in our natural surroundings, this season’s greens offer a stunning foreground or the perfect backdrop for all other hues. Like the first signs of spring, Tender Shoots, a vibrant yellow-green, is invigorating, active and cheerful, while Grayed Jade, a subtle, hushed green with a gray undertone, brings about a mood of quiet reflection and repose. Sophisticated Emerald, a lively, radiant green, inspires insight and clarity while enhancing our sense of well-being. From one extreme to the other, combining all three greens presents an intriguing choice much like Mother Nature intended.
