Hello lovelies, how’s everything going? Each season the team at the Pantone Color Institute creates the Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report; a color overview highlighting the top colors fashion designers showing at NY Fashion Week will be featuring in their collections for the upcoming season.
Combining classicism with colorful expression, the Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report Fall/Winter 2018 features a bold palette of autumnal hues complemented by some more unexpected shades.
Continuing to underscore the desire for color that transcends the seasons, the report for Fall/Winter 2018 highlights the top 10 colors for men’s and women’s fashion, as well as five new classics.
Colors for Fall/Winter 2018 express our need for individuality, ingenuity and creativity.
There is a continued transition away from cyclical trends, and instead of a strong focus on self-expressive colors that evade antiquated seasonal structure.
As a result, we are seeing some very notable non-traditional choices showing up in the Fall/Winter palette, such as PANTONE 12-0740 Limelight and PANTONE 15-3520 Crocus Petal.
These unexpected shades reinvent the seasonal color story and allow for the artistry and originality that moves fashion forward.
While mixing and combining unexpected colors can result in a signature style or look, we are also seeing colors for Fall/Winter 2018 similarly impactful standing alone.
More-so than in previous seasons, many of these hues are strong enough in their own right and are being used to make very specific color statements on their own. via pantone.com
