The PANTONE Color Report for Spring 2016 is out and as New York Fashion Week wraps this Thursday, we’re excited to share some new color inspiration…
According to the report, the new Spring color palette is “influenced by the world of art, new global doors opening and the desire to disconnect from technology and unwind, designers this season have gravitated toward a palette that is first and foremost calming.” The colors pay homage to the beauty of natural resources and “serve as vehicles that transport wearers to more tranquil, mindful environs which encourage relaxation first, followed by curiosity and exploration.”
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. explains “Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves. With our culture still surrounded by so much uncertainty, we are continuing to yearn for those softer shades that offer a sense of calm and relaxation.”
