All mighty COLOR is everywhere around us and part of us, so let’s embrace the new wave of colors that are coming as 2015 Color-Mix forecast. The Future is Bright, and that new outlook is being translated into many shades of strong pops of color along with the more grounded earthy tones of soil and sky that are ever-present around us. From fashion to home, colors are ranging from soft and pail to bold and adventurous – finally we feel we can march into a Bright Future.
The next year’s predictions described here are from my trusted paint vendor Sherwin-Williams, and they tell the story of stretching our vistas from thrilling reaches of sea and space, to the bright flora of islands and rainforests, which showcases ultimately our global inter-connectedness. Check what 2015 SW colors are coming your way:
Ahh, fashion and the colors of the next spring season are echoing the same vibe as we hear straight from the 2015 NY Fashion Week forecasters:
“Spring 2015 Fashion Week kicks off in New York today, style insiders are already looking ahead to warm weather trends. And come March it seems we’ll be swathing ourselves in soft, cool hues.
Top colors for the season include Aquamarine (a sky/sea blue), Scuba Blue (a vibrant shade), Lucite Green (a soft mint) and Classic Blue along with Toasted Almond (a warm tan), Strawberry Ice (think a pink glow), Tangerine (a muted orange), Custard (a subtle yellow), Marsala (a muted wine) and Glacier Gray.
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, says the company’s Fashion Color Report for next spring is inspired by a “growing movement to step out and create ‘quiet zones’ to disconnect from technology and unwind, giving ourselves time to stop and be still.” What is your next color that you will embrace?
It seemed like practically every designer incorporated this cool shade of ice blue into their collections. Labels like Honor, Zimmermann and Christian Siriano embraced the chilly hue.
Usually more of a summertime staple, it looks like we'll all be dragging out our LWD a little early next year. Calvin Klein, Tadashi Shoji and Jill Stuart are just a few of the designers to include ivory in their collections.
Not surprisingly, pink was popping on the spring 2015 runways. But instead of electric pink or a deep raspberry, this shade of light rose was the most popular.
Red stood out like a siren at NYFW, with designers like Zac Posen and Donna Karan incorporating this hue brilliantly. This was the one color that we didn't expect to be as popular as it was for spring 2015. But we're pleasantly surprised.
Here comes the sun! The bright hue—specifically lemon, not mustard—popped up in tons of spring 2015 shows including Michael Kors, DVF, and Delpozo. This is the color you're going to want to nab post-winter!
