Pantone releases the spring 2012 color report

Pantone released their spring 2012 color report on September 8, 2011 and based their predictions for the hottest colors of the season upon the hues most ordered by New York designers for the season.

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

The colors spotted on the New York Fashion Week runways this week are: Tangerine Tango, Solar Power, Bellflower, Cabaret, Sodalite, Sweet Lilac, Margarita, Cockatoo, Driftwood and Starfish. What do you think of the season’s color palette?
