Each season, Pantone surveys the designers of New York Fashion Week to identify up-and-coming colors. This fall, designers are taking cues from the sepia tones of old Hollywood, Chinese opera, cityscapes and countryside to create the sensible and spirited palette.
Here are the ten colors designers chose for the season:
- Bamboo, a surprising fall hue, brings a warm, exotic flavor to the season.
- Radiant Emberglow, a traditional autumnal tone, emanates the warmth of a glowing fire – the perfect panacea to the crisp air of fall.
- Offering a sense of continuity from spring, dynamic Honeysuckle adds a bold punctuation point.
- Phlox, a magical, deep purple with a hint of mystery, is an outstanding statement when used on its own.
- Evoking the freshness of a cool mist in a dark forest, Cedar is a versatile, mid-tone neutral green.
- Deep Teal, a strong, blue-toned green, suggests ocean depths and the color of the sky as daylight descends into darkness.
- Coffee Liqueúr brings a sense of elegance to fall, and is a savory alternative to basic black.
- A warm camel tan, Nougat is tastefully embellished by Phlox, Emberglow or Honeysuckle.
- Orchid Hush, a unique tone of gray with complex orchid undertones, blends well with any other color in the palette.
- Quarry, a reliable medium gray, remains, as always, a practical, dependable staple.
