Pantone Predictions

Awhile ago, Pantone, the undeniable authority on all things concerned with color, looked into its crystal ball and forecast the future of fashion for Spring/Summer 2009. The verdict:


What I found most interesting was the designers' take on the color trends - a lot of them seemed to gravitate towards rose dust and fuschia red.


Will you pick up on Pantone's predicted pallette? Personally, I don't pay much attention to seasonal variations in color. I like to stick to what I know works for me: black, cream, gray and the occasional jewel tone. It makes coordinating outfits a whole lot easier! But I guess it wouldn't hurt to dabble in a bit of pink and purple...

  1. Really like the dust rose, and have also been drawn to the rose salmon and lavender, and especially a cross between the rose + lavender:

  5. pastels colours are so pretty for spring@ i dont really pay much attention to colour trends either, but shops do & bring out more clothes in that colour so i end up buying the right colour but that's just chance right? ;)

  6. I'm still seeing lots of cranberry influence. Their predictions are a little bright for me, although I love a great shade of yellow.
