At the end of a year focused on the rich and deep tones of
emerald, Pantone announced today the color of the year for 2014 – radiant
orchid! This blend of purple, pink and fuchsia is a vibrant yet subtle hue, and
according to Leatrice Eisemen, executive director of the Pantone Color
the color “encourages expanded creativity and originality.”
We love the enchanted aesthetic that radiant orchid brings
to interior spaces and fashion alike. Take a look at where we’ve spotted the
hue so far.
The vibrant color was featured on the 2014 spring runway of MaxMara, Yoana Baraschi and Temperly Longon among others.

Used creatively as a playful accent, this hue makes entertaining that much more festive. We love how it makes this cocktail look like a gemstone.
