Pantone announces Fashion Color Report for fall

Feb '11
Pantone LLC, an X-Rite company, and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, unveiled the PANTONE Fashion Color Report Fall 2011. The report features the top 10 colors for women's fashion for fall 2011, along with designer sketches, quotes and headshots, and is available for free download. The release of the PANTONE Fashion Color Report coincides with Fashion Week in New York, which begins today. This season's report also includes the most directional hues for men's fall 2011 fashion.

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

• PANTONE 14-0740 Bamboo
• PANTONE 17-1547 Emberglow
• PANTONE 18-2120 Honeysuckle
• PANTONE 19-2820 Phlox
• PANTONE 16-0526 Cedar
• PANTONE 19-4914 Deep Teal
• PANTONE 18-0930 Coffee Liqueur
• PANTONE 16-1320 Nougat
• PANTONE 13-3805 Orchid Hush
• PANTONE 15-4305 Quarry

“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,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Much like a painter's masterpiece, there is a certain romance to this season's palette.”

Taking cues from the great masters, sepia tones of old Hollywood, Chinese opera, cityscapes and countryside, designers are paying close attention to texture, contrast and color for fall 2011 – pairing menswear with feminine twists, warm prints with cool metals, incorporating both old and new influences, and creating an intriguing balance between colors.

Bamboo, a surprising fall hue, brings a warm, exotic flavor to the season. Like a filtered sunset on the waning days of fall, Bamboo is a standout yellow with a subtle green undertone. This dappled shade pairs dramatically with several of the top 10, including Phlox, Teal and Honeysuckle.

Radiant Emberglow, a traditional autumnal tone, emanates the warmth of a glowing fire – the perfect panacea to the crisp air of fall. Combine Emberglow with Coffee Liqueur for a classic look, or with Honeysuckle for something a bit more retro. Add a spark with shoes or a handbag in Emberglow, or perhaps a patterned scarf combining purpled Phlox or Deep Teal.

Offering a sense of continuity from spring, dynamic Honeysuckle adds a bold punctuation point. This playful, reddish pink works with any other color in the palette, especially fall staples like Coffee Liqueur and Nougat. To add some intensity, pair it with complementary Bamboo. Flirtatious and festive, Honeysuckle produces a healthy glow – great for cosmetics and holiday soirees.

Phlox, a magical, deep purple with a hint of mystery, is an outstanding statement when worn on its own. Add Phlox to this season's neutrals to create a bit of drama, or combine it with Cedar, Deep Teal or Coffee Liqueur for something extraordinary. To add even more excitement, pair Phlox with Honeysuckle or Bamboo against a Cedar background – a combination inspired by Mother Nature.
