It's official ladies, the colors are out... for Spring 2010. Over here on the West Coast, it's nowhere near time to switch over to the fall wardrobe with temperatures still in the 80s, but of course, there's always looking ahead!
Every season there is an analysis put out of the top Pantone colors that were chosen by designers for their new collections. “The vibrancy of the top five colors [for women] — versus the neutrals we see toward the bottom of the ranking — show that designers are choosing optimism for the season,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, which disclosed the top 10 colors chosen by New York designers in the Pantone Fashion Color Report Spring 2010.
With the recession still in effect, designers are still hunting for ways to make customers feel expensive for lower prices. The colors for next Spring definitely will add to wardrobe as we choose key pieces to spruce up our trendiness. What are the colors you ask? Well, let's start with the top color, Violet... purple is a power color after all. More colors going down the list of the percentage of designers who used the colors the most in their new collections are: Aurora (yellow), Turquoise, Fusion Coral, Tomato Puree, Tuscany, through Pink Champagne and Eucalyptus.
The bright colors will definitely be show stopping pieces I'm sure... I'm seeing myself in a turquoise fitted suit now... back to reality - head to WWD.com now to check out the Pantone colors for women and of course, see the menswear choices as well so you can be coordinated with your lover for Spring... nothing beats a picnic in style!
