We’ve got this season’s latest shades for from Pantone Color Institute, a trend forecasting and color consultancy.
For each season, the global color authority, as it calls itself, sifts through the collections of several prominent fashion designers. After evaluating, Pantone develops a report noting the top 10 colors for each specific season. This year, for the first time, aside from New York, Pantone also did a report for London Fashion Week.
Although it’s true that the Pantone report is always published with fashion in mind, there’s no denying that more florists and flower designers, especially those working for the wedding industry, are keeping track with this trend, too.
