Pantone predicts vibrant and fresh hues in its color report for spring 2012. The premier authority on color, this institute has forecasted fashion hues for years. For this upcoming season, playful pastels and punchy citruses rule the runway.
Pantone surveys fashion designers each season to collect insight on prominent colors and inspiration. The feedback is used to create the report, a reference for retailers and fashion consumers.
This warm and welcoming palette was inspired in part by nature, springtime renewal and cloudless days. A rich tangerine and sunny yellow add cheer, rounded out by soft purple, delicate pink, calming blue and tangy yellow-green.
