Last week, Pantone released their Spring 2013 Fashion Colour Report. The colours are taken directly from runway trends and draw inspiration from some of the hottest designers in the fashion world, such as Tracy Reese, Herve Leger, Rachel Roy and Ella Moss. Think of their findings as the Coles Notes of couture; Pantone’s picks sum up the most used, most loved and most on trend hues of the upcoming season.
I am loving so many of these shades – particularly Tender Shoots, a vibrant yellow-green; African Violet, a statement colour that brings a touch of intrigue; and Nectarine, a bright, effervescent citrus orange with coral undertones. It’s also good to see clean, bold colours make the cut, such as Lemon Zest, Monaco Blue and Poppy Red. Folks, memorize these colours, because you’re about to see them popping up everywhere!
