New York Fashion Week kicked off today, and with it, a slew of fabulous Fall goodies. One of them, which I always look forward to, is Pantone Color Institute's fashion color report. For Fall '11, it's a brand-new bunch, some bright, some moody, some neutral — bamboo, honeysuckle, deep teal, coffee liqueur, nougat, emberglow, cedar, and way more.

Every year, the Pantone Color Institute releases the top 10 hues that will color our world for the upcoming season. The latest Spring '11 hues are here to liven our lives and serve as an escape, and are inspired by locales like Africa, India, Peru, and Turkey. "This time, everything is a little more exotic . . . There is still a lot of concern about the economy and life in general. It is very natural that designers would have those things in their thought process as they choose their colors," said Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman. Step inside to see the top 10 Spring '11 colors.
Fashion Week has begun, and you know what that means: time for Pantone Color Institute to announce its top 10 colors for Spring '10. The verdict? A mix of bright and neutral tones. “It’s a cautious optimism, however, because no one can ignore the elephant still in the room — the recession,” said Leatrice Eiseman of the Pantone Color Institute. Violet ranked in as number one for its exciting yet cool tone; Tomato Puree made its mark as the passionate color of choice; Fusion Coral was chosen for its flattering nature to all skin tones; and Amparo Blue was picked for its warm undertones. Interesting!
