Pantone just announced THE color of the year for 2014 and the winner is…Radiant Orchid! Last year we saw Emerald take the crown and the year before that was Tangerine Tango, both pretty bold and vibrant colors. But this years choice is a bit more subdued. The soft purple-y pink is said to “inspire confidence” and “emanate great joy, love and health”. The color also is part of a larger pink trend that swept the runways for Spring 2014. Designers like Dior, Versace and Prabal Gurung incorporated the color into their spring collection. Expect to see Radiant Orchid all over both the men’s and women’s clothing departments early next year. For more information on the color, see Pantone’s dedicated page.
