Colours to make you say ‘wow’ in 2017
With dark mornings and endless drizzle, Winter can be pretty dull. To give you a pick-me-up before the new year, we’ve got together our favourite shades of the Pantone colour report.
Whether you design pet products or couture gowns, use these colours to add some zest to your next collection.
Give yourself a little hit of tropical paradise with this refreshing aqua shade. Victoria Beckham’s collection featured pleated velvet skirts in this exact colour. Why not use it to make dresses extra dreamy while you wait for summer?
This soothing shade is reminiscent of classic denim. Top designers Caroline Herrera and Zac Posen used it to add a sense of elegance to their most recent collections. Feature it in a homeware collection to create a sense of calm.
Kale is no longer just a delicious veggie, but the colour you want to paint your living room in. This natural shade works well as a contrast if you’re working with vibrant shades. See it in DKNY’s latest range.
The lush yellow-green colour Greenery has been named Colour of the Year 2017. Use this shade in your collection if you want to dive headfirst into spring/summer freshness. It’s guaranteed to keep you revitalised as you start the year.
If you’ve got a hankering for more colour inspiration, our Pantone Pinterest board will have you reaching for your sketchbook.
