Colors Projected by Pantone for Spring 2012




Dance Into Spring 2012


Fall is barely upon us but in the fashion world you must always be looking forward. Pantone has released their color projections for Spring 2012 and I wanted to share them with my fashion forward readers. 

For spring 2012 designers are inspired by diverse influences, showcasing a range of
styles and lifestyles, from free and playful and light and breezy, to contemporary classics. Colors likewise reflect these differing moods, encapsulating vivid brights, soft muted tones and fun-loving pastels.

"Consumers look to spring for renewed energy, optimism and the promise of a brighter day," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. "They 
have learned how color can help them alter a mood and provide the vitality and enthusiasm that enables them to experiment with new looks and color combinations."

Provocative Tangerine Tango, an enticing juicy orange, is a vivacious and appealing refresher to enliven anyone's outlook this spring. Providing a jolt of energy, Solar Power radiates warmth and cheer.

Fanciful Bellflower, a distinct ornamental purple, exudes uniqueness and creativity. Scintillating and sexy, Cabaret is a sensual and intense rosy-red — an excellent 
choice for summer clothing and cosmetics.

Sodalite Blue, a classic maritime hue, brings order and calmness to mind. Like an 
anchor to a ship, this dependable shade works with every color in the palette. 
Cockatoo, a tactile blue-green, is sure to make your spirits soar. This unusual hue 
adds a whimsical touch to the palette and will surely make a statement this spring.

Margarita, a piquant yellow-green, lifts spirits with its refreshing and stimulating glow. Reminiscent of a blossoming garden on an early spring morning, fragrant Sweet Lilac evokes the fresh scents of summer. This delicate pinkish lilac adds a touch of romance 
to any wardrobe.

Natural versatile neutrals add practicality to this season's brights. Driftwood, an 
adaptable blend of beige and gray with a slightly weathered feel, and Starfish, a 
perfect warm summer neutral, complement all colors featured in this season's top 10.

For an ultra-bold vibrant look this spring, try mixing Bellflower with Tangerine Tango 
and Cabaret. Combine Margarita with Sweet Lilac and Cockatoo for a subtle 
alternative, or combine Margarita with Sweet Lilac and Driftwood for a more 
practical variation. Solar Power is best juxtaposed with Sodalite Blue. For a safer 
bet, add a natural neutral like Starfish to the mix.

For over 18 years, Pantone, the global authority on color, has surveyed the designers 
of New York Fashion Week and beyond to bring you the season's most important 
color trends. This report previews the most prominent hues for spring 2012.
