The Pantone Color Institute™ designates year after year a color that is to resonate around the world the following year. This color doesn’t necessarily represent the new trend in the world of fashion although it can often have a big influence. It’s a color that captures inside it everything that’s taking place on a global level and it’s a reflection of what the people need, an attitude.
For 2014 Pantone chose Radiant Orchid as the color of the year. It’s a modern and vibrant color which combined purple, fuchsia and pink undertones and has a very joyful presence.
The pallets for spring 2014 also include a variety of other beautiful shades. There’s a very beautiful balance between the light colors or pastels and the vibrant colors. In between them there’s a series of neutrals which serve as a bridge between the two contrasting categories.
