Top 10 Pantone Colours for Fall 2015

Top 10 Pantone Colours for Fall 2015 | Travelshopa

 

Pantone paints Fall 2015’s scenery with a palette of bold colour statements and earthy neutrals that are an adventurous cocktail of fun, fantasy and all things natural. This Fall, designers do not assign colours to a specific gender, instead choosing to look to sartorial styling and fabrics to define both a masculine and feminine interpretation of hues and colour combinations. Take for instance a colour such as Stormy Weather, which can take the form of delicate layers of tulle or grainy textured wool to cater to each gender.

The Pantone Fall 2015 trend forecast depicts an “evolving colour landscape” –  a stark contrast between down-to-earth neutrals such as Stormy Weather, Dried Herb, Desert Sage and the intensity of Amethyst Orchid, Reflecting Pond, Oak Buff, Marsala, Cashmere Rose and Cadmium Orange.

Spring 2015 marks a conceivable effort to find a connection to nature. Transiting towards the softer side of the colour spectrum, mellow brights, celestial pastels and nature-inspired neutrals are coaxed out of hiding into heavy rotation next year.

According to Pantone, the world-renowned authority on colour trends, the theme for the oncoming Spring 2015 color palette is ‘en plein air’, which translates to ‘(being) in the open air’.

This physical awakening is conjured up through soft and even-tempered hues that call to mind retro pleasures, enchanting tropical escapes, folkloric and floral art.
