Just announced: Fall 2011 colors

10 Feb
Pantone Fall Colors 2011

It’s New York Fashion Week and Pantone has just released their Fall color report for 2011. In December the color of the year was announced; Honeysuckle is no longer alone. The complimentary palette brings to mind vintage sepia tones. We can expect to see these colors influence fashion in the coming year.

Sensible and Spirited.
“Designers take a painterly approach to fall 2011 by artfully combining bright colors with staple neutrals, reminiscent of how an artist would construct a stunning work of art.” 
– Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute®

I’m pleased to see some of my favorite shades in the mix. I recently picked up a pair of shorts in Cedar. Deep Teal is a staple in my wardrobe. I’m a huge fan of the combination of the first three warmer colors, they’re reminiscent of the shades found in a sunset. I once painted a bedroom ceiling in Orchid Hush and cannot wait to see this in the stores.

How about you? Which are you drawn to?
