Each season, designers look to the Pantone Fashion Color Report for inspiration, who describe Fall 2015 colors as “earthy neutrals with a range of bold color statements and patterns to reflect a landscape.” Imagine colors with names like Dried Herb, an organic shade redolent of nature’s earthy fragrances. Biscay Bay, that inspires thoughts of soothing, tropical waters, taking us to a place that is familiar and inviting. Warm things up with Cadmium Orange, a welcoming and subtly dramatic shade that is striking on it’s own or as a bold contrast. Marsala, the Pantone Color of the Year, brings sophisticated earthiness to the mix. Cashmere Rose, Stormy Weather, Amethyst Orchid, Oak Buff, Desert Sage, and Reflecting Pond complete the line up.
Leatrice EisemanExecutive Director, Pantone Color Institute:
Juxtaposition of color from opposite sides of the spectrum emphasizes poise and confidence on the runway. The Fall 2015 palette is rooted in multi-faceted, androgynous colors that can be worn to portray effortless sophistication across men’s and women’s fashion; it is the first time we are seeing a truly unisex color palette.
Look for these colors in everything from your basic t-shirt wardrobe to separates, accessories, makeup, manicures, and outerwear for the season.
