As it does with each passing season, Pantone, the authority on and our go-to for all things color, on Sept. 23 announced its predictions for spring 2017’s most popular hues. It’s not confirmed whether or not Pantone predicts the future, but these seasonal predictions can frequently be seen on the runways during fashion week, the racks of department stores and home furnishings around the world.
In its Spring 2017 Color Report, Pantone gave us a mix of earthy neutrals and bold, vibrant colors – not straying far from the fall 2016 lineup. The blues are a little brighter with Island Paradise and Niagara; the pink hues continue strong; and the greens, orange and yellows steal the show. The understated of the group may be the neutral Hazelnut, but this camel color adds lightness to the bold lineup.
When it comes to your gorgeous bridal party, the Pale Dogwood, Primerose Yellow and Island Paradise could make for a few beautiful showstoppers. Let Hazelnut bring sophisticated charm to any spring soiree; while bold Lapis Blue, Flame and Pink Yarrow are begging any couple headed down the aisle in the spring to add them to their tablescape.
Laura Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute writes the following on pantone.com about the spring 2017 lineup:
"One of the things that we saw this year, was a renewed sense of imagination in which color was appearing in context that was different than the traditional," said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. "Reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature, our Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report evokes a spectrum of emotion and feeling. From the warmth of sunny days with Pantone 13-0755 Primrose Yellow to the invigorating feeling of breathing fresh mountain air with Pantone 18-0107 Kale and the desire to escape to pristine waters with Pantone 14-4620 Island Paradise, designers applied color in playful, yet thoughtful and precise combinations to fully capture the promises, hope and transformation that we yearn for each Spring.”
