Thinking Fall 2016...

Back in February, when Pantone announced their Fashion Color Report for Fall 2016, autumn seemed a lifetime away!  Now that it's August, fall is just around the corner and the first tinges of the new season can be felt in the air!  Truthfully, I like to revisit the Color Reports from time to time.  It's not just because their color palettes and color combinations are endlessly inspirational, but I really admire their thoughtful approach to color.  They recognize the power that color has on our lives and how it can be a reflection of our times.  Leatrice Eiseman wrote, "The desire for tranquility, strength, and optimism have inspired a Fall 2016 color palette..."  With everything going on in the world, these words couldn't be more apt.  CLICK HERE to visit the Color Report for Fall 2016.  I encourage you all to take a few moments to read through the report and spend a little time with their interpretation of the color forecast.

Also, keep your eyes peeled!  The new Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2017 should debut in about a month!  This report usually surfaces in early September and includes the future Color of the Year (which is normally announced in early December), so it's always exciting to take bets and see what the new annual color will be!
