Happy New Year! With the new year comes Pantone’s new Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid.
Biannually, Pantone hosts super-secret meetings in varying European capitals to come up with the color for the following year. They then announces the color of the year and publishes it in/on Pantone View, a color trend service that is used by florists, fashion designers, etc…
Remember seeing Pantone + Sephora makeup collection in Sephora stores? In 2012, they collaborated on a makeup line that featured the then color of the year, Tangerine Tango. The collaboration continued in 2013 with Emerald and in 2014 with Radiant Orchid.
So how will you incorporate the new color into your wardrobe? What colors will you pair it with?
I’m loving Prabal Gurung’s palate pairing (below) of black, white, and orchid.
