Pantone Fashion Color Report – SS13
Pantone, the world’s authority on color, unveiled their Fashion Color Report for Spring 2013 (download here) this week just in time for New York Fashion Week. This year, designers are addressing consumer’s desires for self-expression, balance and a need to re-energize. The color direction for Spring 2013 satisfies these compelling needs with a palette that mixes dynamic brights with novel neutrals to create a harmonious balance. This allows for unique combinations that offer practicality and versatility, but at the same time, demand attention and earn an appreciative glance.
“The expression ‘balancing act’ is something we all relate to as we strive to find harmony in the frantic pace of our everyday lives,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “The same can be said for fashion as we look for balance between light and bright, classic and new. This season’s color palette emphasizes this need for balance, while at the same time allowing for individuality, self-expression and excitement.”
