PANTONE VIEW Colour Planner S/S 14 edition launched
Oct '12
Pantone LLC, an X-Rite company and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, announced the Spring/Summer 2014 edition of PANTONE VIEW Colour Planner. Looking at color as a language, this multi-discipline color forecast, titled Portal, highlights the key palettes for women’s wear, menswear, active wear, cosmetics and lifestyle, as well as industrial and graphic design.

Portal speaks to a point of joining, a transitional moment where we look back to the past as well as forward toward what’s to come. Fusing wisdom and the legacy of experience with curiosity and the gift of youth, as we move through the portal we become a part of another view, forming a path that leads to another world and a fresh new perspective.

Similarly, the colors on our wheel for Spring/Summer 2014 are all interconnected. As we travel through the portal we see the use of strong color continuing, becoming more grown-up, mellow and sophisticated in its level of thinking.

“Color has the power to stimulate consumer emotions and influence purchasing decisions. As today’s consumer becomes increasingly color savvy, it is critical that color remains a pivotal part of any design strategy,” said Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute. “The PANTONE VIEW Colour Planner forecast not only provides fresh and unexpected color combinations needed to capture the attention of the consumer, but also the context, material and product direction for how the colors can be used.”

PANTONE VIEW Colour Planner Spring/Summer 2014 contains the following seven palettes:

Natural Dimension

The Natural Dimension colors blend fossilized beiges, including bone sand, concentrated smoke grays, metallic lime and frozen ether – the colors of ruins that tell us stories from the past.


Passage highlights blue, a color most appreciated through personal perception: Blues of innocence, sadness and hope, and blues of the sky, the infinite, the everything and the nothing.

Both Sides Now

Both Sides Now draws on the past to paint a modern future with a palette immersed in rich sepia tones, antique white, lamp black and yellow ochre, blended to obscure and reveal hidden layers.

Turned on its Head

Turned on its Head reflects the passion for fantasy and augmented realities, revealing vivid pink, red and orange color exchanges to create fabulous and sometimes unsettling color blends.


Flux celebrates nature’s springtime colors – blossom pinks burst forth into sky blues and lush, sappy greens with buttercup yellow casting a vivid sunbeam over this kinetic family of floral inspired pastels.

Trip Time

Trip Time is a combination of bright and intense colors inspired by moments of growth in nature and the energy exchange between light, water and heat.

Harmonic Oscillation

Harmonic Oscillation is a mosaic drawn from nature where dark blue is over-dyed with green lichen, teamed to lagoon greens, scaled to sand, as well as a hint of gray taken from the morning sky.
