We love color! It reflects mood, personal style, and adds drama. It gives the wearer a lift and allows her or him to make a clear personal statement.
With each international fashion week cycle comes the Pantone color report. Don’t read this report as the oracle of Delphi or the ancient soothsayer’s all-be-all, it is actually a countdown on the most popular colors used by designers the world over for that fashion cycle.
These colors should be the ones you’ll see next spring in most stores. But by the looks of it, some of these color directions are already here this fall-winter, perhaps more muted or deeper in hue reflecting the seasonality. Is it simply an organic seasonal evolution? I’d say yes.
