For those of you that are wondering who or what Pantone is, Pantone Inc. is the world-renowned authority on color, provider of color systems and leading technology for the selection and accurate communication of color across a variety of industries from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer.
The 10 color trends for Fall/Winter 2015 were revealed way back in Spring (March) of this year. I had no plans to explore the colors till now (Fall), hence my reason for bringing it to you attention now. Another reason, I have a short-term memory. LOL! So now that Fall is finally here, together we can have an awesome time playing around with all the suggested colors.
These color palette is truly unisex because it is rooted in multifaceted, androgynous colors that can be worn to portray effortless sophistication across men and women fashions (Pantone).
Marsala is my favorite. I talked about the color on my Facebook page (here) sometimes in March before the birth of this blog. I love the deep, warm and bold richness of the color. It was also the color of Spring/Summer as well.
