Pantone Color Report: Fall 2013
For more than 20 years, Pantone, the global authority on color, has brought you the season’s most important color trends by surveying the designers from New York Fashion Week. As the season of sweaters, scarves and boots approaches, here are a few prominent hues you can expect to see for Fall 2013.
One of the season’s stand out colors, Acai is inspired by the darker side of nature and is said to add mystery and richness to the Fall palette. Incorporate this hue with other Pantone colors to create endless combinations with a royal feel.
Named after a Brazilian dance and musical genre, this dramatic color expresses emotion, passion and drive. Spirited and intense, Samba is the perfect hue to liven up the season’s neutrals and works well as a pop of color in shoes or handbags.
A naturally lush shade of green, Deep Lichen is able to capture both ends of the seasonal spectrum. This mossy tone will be seen mixed with deep blues and grays and in head-to-toe ensembles this Fall. Create a natural look in a flowy lichen minidress.
A cheerful take on Tangerine Tango, the color of the year for 2012, Koi brings a playful and exotic feel to the Pantone Fall palette. Work this vibrant hue into your handbags and accessories for a rainy day pick-me-up.
A dark, mercurial gray, Turbulence serves as one of the season’s cornerstone colors. This neutral works to anchor brighter colors this Fall and provides a sophisticated alternative to the black basics typically worn in cooler months.
