Pantone names it’s top hue for Spring 2015
Last month we teased the up-n-coming set list for Pantone’s Spring 2015 color cues, and now the color kings have officially crowned next years king. Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015 is a moody little number called Marsala. Think a dark, rusty red poised to take over your lipstick, wine and wardrobe palette from the time the first buds bloom to the fall of autumns first leaf.
Chosen each year by combing through design from fashion to interiors to graphics, and sourcing out the single common color thread that ties them all together, Pantone’s color of the year is a good bet when it comes to clueing in to next year’s runway collections. In fact, you can anticipate the hue in the designs of Fendi, Dennis Basso, and Hervé Leger for spring.
So why Marsala?
“Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability,” read a statement by executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman. “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings, and interiors.”
