Let’s Welcome Spring With These Pantone Colours!

March 22, 2017

Spring has come, the sun is shining and we are ready to enjoy this beautiful atmosphere in Amsterdam!

What shall I wear today?” The question that haunts us every day. But don’t worry, we’re here to help you find that great outfit!
Spring, like any self-respecting season, brings with it new trends to show off. The synonym of this season is definitely colour; leave your black, gloomy and dark clothing behind and make room for a colourful look that immediately puts everyone around you in good spirits.

The fashion colours of the Spring / Summer 2017 chosen by Pantone shades are beloved by many women, intense pastel shades and in some cases even daring neon accents, along with more muted tones that apparently will dictate the fashion rules for the next season. After observing, with a keen eye, the new collections presented in the major fashion capitals of the world, the Pantone Institute has elected ten shades of colour as the most representative.

Let’s check them out!

PRIMROSE, a very intense tone of yellow that marked major catwalks during Milan Fashion Week SS17 from Valentino to the Max Mara collection.

Equally lively and chic is the colour named GREENERY, a lively and fun-loving shade of green that Michael Kors wanted for his most prized outfits.

Two shades of pink chosen by Pantone called PINK YARROW and PALE DOGWOOD. The first a strong and gritty magenta, the second a powder pink mixed with antique pink accents; which fashion houses like Gucci and Fendi have not been able to resist.

Literally “flaming”, RED FLAME is the colour used by Dior and Sportmax, to me the most intriguing hue of the season.

Blue is a favourite colour by fashionistas, we can find it in Pantone’s collection in three shades. The clearest is ISLAND PARADISE, a heavenly and refined sorbet shown on the catwalk of Chanel.

A dark and elegant blue, NIAGARA, the great protagonist especially in the collections of elegant evening wear.

While the most intense blue is LAPIS, a mix between the original cyan blue and the somewhat darker cobalt blue. Shown in the Marc Jacobs collection in Paris and in New York at the Carolina Herrera show.

Not lacking in the Pantone selection for next year are darker shades, starting with the brown tint HAZELNUT, a delicate nutty colour. The darker military green called GREEN KALE, two brands who used these shades in their collection are Vetements and Louis Vuitton.

What’s your favourite Pantone colour?!
