It’s ’bout that time of year. NYFW kicked off today (watch the shows here!) and Pantone just announced the top 10 colors for spring 2015. So, it’s basically what we can expect to see on the runways over the next 30 days. Designers will be showing cooler and softer tones, with shades of blue and green dominating the list. Aquamarine ranks number one, followed by Scuba Blue and Lucite Green.
The theme of the colors is “En Plein Air,” but it’s actually more about unplugging. Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman tells WWD, “Being constantly barraged by text messages, cell phones, e-mail and all of this technology 24/7, cooler colors speak to creating a kind of a quiet zone. They are a place to get away from it all, an escape button that, literally, we can push. It’s also kind of a freeing, open air. It’s just a natural aftermath for a crazy world.” So stop updating/Tweeting/Instagramming for a second and take a look at the new spring 2015 designs, will ya?!
