the report.

With the release of Pantone's newest color report, there is sure to be a full-blown color explosion in the blogosphere this week. The Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2013 is an absolute must-read. I loved seeing how fashion's biggest stars channeled these hues in their designs.


I always love seeing the names they attribute to these Pantone shades. African Violet? Tender Shoots? They're spot-on, if you ask me. My favorites are Poppy Red and Linen--with Emerald and Lemon Zest coming in close behind.

Is it bad that all of the fabulous fashion coming out of NYC and this color report already have me dreaming of spring? I know, I know. I'll stop wishing time away ;) 

P.S. I {sadly} don't work for Pantone. I am simply using the color names + numbers in this post and cannot claim to have crafted them on my own ;)

  4. I sort of love Emerald... I've been having a thing for greens lately. It's a little tough to swallow the fact that spring is already on the drawing boards. I do love these colors though... I'm sure they'll have me wanting spring fashions sometime soon. It's an unavoidable fact. (:
