Pantone LLC, an X-Rite company, and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, unveils the PANTONE Fashion Color Report Spring 2011. The report features the top 10 colors for women's fashion for spring 2011, along with designer sketches, quotes and headshots, and is available for free download. The release of the PANTONE Fashion Color Report coincides with New York Fashion Week, which begins Thursday.

The top colors for women's fashion for spring 2011 are:

• PANTONE 18-2120 Honeysuckle
• PANTONE 16-1349 Coral Rose
• PANTONE 14-0941 Beeswax
• PANTONE 18-4039 Regatta
• PANTONE 15-3817 Lavender
• PANTONE 15-4825 Blue Curacao
• PANTONE 14-6324 Peapod
• PANTONE 12-1206 Silver Peony
• PANTONE 18-1235 Russet
• PANTONE 15-4502 Silver Cloud

“The colors designers have chosen for the spring season present an interesting marriage of unexpected warm and cool tones,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “By cleverly combining complementary colors, those that are opposites on the color wheel, they have created a striking intensity in the palette. These unique color combinations make it possible for consumers to pair existing pieces in colors traditionally associated with fall, with new favorites to punch up springtime wardrobes.”

In addition to designer contributions, the report features commentary from fashion insiders and leading retailers discussing the geographic locations currently influencing fashion and design. Industry gurus highlighted in the report include: Cate Adair, costume designer for “Desperate Housewives;”

India Hicks, creative partner at Crabtree & Evelyn; Simone Legno, chief creative officer at Tokidoki; Lanie List, chief merchandising officer at Iconix Brand Group, Inc.; Collier Strong, celebrity make-up artist; and Essie Weingarten, Founder of Essie Cosmetics, Ltd. Contributors from Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Macy's also weigh in.

Citing exotic destinations like Africa, India, Peru and Turkey as inspiration for spring 2011, designers continue to satisfy consumers' need to escape everyday challenges with intriguing color combinations that transport them to foreign lands.

Flirtatious Honeysuckle is a feel-good hue that brings a festive sense of playfulness to this season's palette. This vibrant pinkish-red for both apparel and cosmetics makes consumers feel alive, and is a perfect post-winter pick-me-up.

Spicy, gregarious and persuasive describe Coral Rose, a sophisticated orange that, much like Beeswax, a warm, honeyed yellow, conjures up feelings of faraway lands and locales. Pair either of these piquant hues with a cool, refreshing color-wheel opposite like Regatta for a vibrant color combination that will add zest to any wardrobe. Romantic, fanciful Lavender implies sensuality with its subtle hint of red undertone. Combine it with Beeswax or Coral Rose for a unique counterpoint.
