Just a few months after announcing Marsala as the color of the year for 2015, Pantone has released its list of the Top 10 Fall Colors for this year. The colors give off a decidedly earthy vibe, mixed with somewhat muted pastels, and, as WWD has suggested, looks like a color wheel straight out of the ’70s. Rounding out the top three are Dried Herb (a mossy green), Marsala, and Biscay Bay (a teal blue).
Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman said that they chose to go this route, not out of nostalgia, but rather because they saw similarities between that decade and the present, namely “financial unrest, international strife and climate change.” She also suggests that these colors have a grounding quality, offering a sense of balance in our often hectic and over-scheduled world. With New York Fashion Week fast approaching (it’s tomorrow, people!), we should all be on the lookout for these colors.
