Pantone LLC, an X-Rite and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, today announced the addition of 175 new colors to its PANTONE FASHION + HOME Color System, bringing its total to 2,100 shades.

“The new PANTONE FASHION + HOME Colors are perfect! There is a range of colors to suit every collection – both nuanced and tonal colors as well as vibrant and fresh,” said Peter Som, American women's wear designer. “At the end of the day, all of the colors are sophisticated and fit with whatever I'm inspired by.”

"One would think it would be impossible for Pantone to best itself, but indeed it has,” said Jonathan Adler, maker and designer. “I didn't imagine that there were 175 more colors in the world but Pantone managed to find them, number them and add them to its already legendary assortment – an unbelievable feat and a boon to designers the world over."

As a comprehensive resource to the industry, hundreds of thousands of designers, manufacturers and retailers worldwide rely on the PANTONE FASHION + HOME Color System for color selection, accurate color communication and creative inspiration. Reflecting today's global color influences across fashion, home furnishings and interior design, the 175 new colors enrich the current palette and focus on areas of significant market importance and color trend movement.

“Designers continually discover new color inspiration and look to Pantone to help them reliably reproduce these colors in their designs,” said Laurie Pressman, vice president of fashion, home and interiors at Pantone. “When evaluating how to expand the PANTONE FASHION + HOME Color System with more color options, it was essential to create a broad range of colors that were both trend-right and technically achievable for all of the markets we serve – from fashion and home furnishings to interior and industrial design.”

The 175 new colors represent permanent additions to the PANTONE FASHION + HOME Color System. For a more comprehensive selection, all color families were expanded to include:

- A broader range of nuanced neutrals and mid-tones
- An increased number of vibrant brights
- Many complex hues with greater depth and intensity
- More subdued and smoky variations of popular colors

Arranged by color family, the 175 new colors can be purchased separately or combined with current PANTONE FASHION + HOME and PANTONE PAINTS + INTERIORS publications. The new colors are also available individually in PANTONE SMART Color Swatch Card format.

Every PANTONE FASHION + HOME new colors purchase includes PANTONE COLOR MANAGER Software, a versatile application that provides the digital data for all new colors to update popular design applications including Adobe Creative Suite, QuarkXPress, Corel Painter, X-Rite i1 Profiler, the Mac OS Color Picker and myPantone.com. COLOR MANAGER allows users to:

• View andexport all PANTONE Color Libraries including the complete PANTONE FASHION + HOME Color Library (FASHION + HOME cotton, paper and recently announced nylon brights), as well as all PANTONE PLUS and Goe Libraries – totaling over 13,500 PANTONE Colors
