This Season’s Colors

     pantonecolors-spring2008 Every season has it’s own set of fashion colors. The colors are picked by Pantone, Inc. They provide the color standards for fashion and design. I found this to be quite interesting because I always wondered who chose the season’s colors. They even release a Color Report. It features the top ten colors for women’s fashions. 10 colors, I always thought the season’s colors were like 3. The top 10 colors for this season are just true Easter colors, to me. They range from Rococco Red to Silver Gray.

     A favorite for designers this season seems to be Snorkel Blue. You will be seeing quite a bit of this color in the stores. This is a dependable and sophisticated take on the regular navy blue. My favorite this season is Cantaloupe. It is so light and girly, I can just imagine it in a cute spring dress with a great pair of heels. The pink this season is Pink Mist, it appears more purple than the pinks I am used to seeing. Can’t wait to see what they use this color for. Another of my absolute favorite colors to wear is yellow. It is such a bright, fun summery color it just make you feel happy. The warm and cheerful Freesia is this season’s yellow. People are supposedly instinctively drawn to this color, I don’t know about that but I do know that I love that color. It goes great with a tan Batting Eyelashes.

     The remaining 4 colors are Croissant, Golden Olive, Spring Crocus, and Daiquiri Green. Daiquiri green, so now your outfit can match your drink Martini Glass. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute stated, “The Spring ’08 color palette perfectly reflects the cheerfulness of the season”. She is so correct about that, they all make me think of Spring time…good job Pantone, Inc.

  1. I have been using a Pantone color wheel for the past 20+ years while working as a graphic designer and I never realized that Pantone had anything at all to do with choosing the popular colors for any season. Very interesting!
