the pantone fashion color report

superstar stila intern lauren schlessinger with a fall/winter colors report:

The Pantone Fashion Color Report is the most widely recognized and used color standard in the world, especially within the fashion industry. Each season at New York Fashion Week, it surveys designers and collects feedback on the most prominent colors within all of the designers’ collections. From this, they create a report that features the top 10 colors for the season.

Although it’s already November (wow! where did the time go?!) there is still a couple of months left of this Fall/Winter season, so I thought I’d share what colors the fashion industry says is hot for this season. These colors apply not only to clothes, but to makeup as well!

American Beauty — this flattering true red is neither harsh nor over-the-top. Designed to suit all skin tones, this warm but robust hue can be blended with almost any shade.

Rapture Rose — represents all that is new and fresh about this fall’s designs. With nurturing and feminine tones, this color plays upon the vibrancy of last season’s fuchsia but is toned down a little with soft pink. This key shade transcends clothing into cosmetics and accessories.

Burnt Sienna — more a pinkish, earthy orange, reminiscent of Mediterranean terracotta roof tiles. Warm and comforting, probably the most-fall like of all the Pantone shades.

Majolica Blue — adding an exotic feel to the color group this cross between teal blue and navy complements oranges and purple hues perfectly.

Purple Heart — sitting somewhere between true purple and lilac, this refined tone is soft and sensual.

Warm Olive — a rich yellowy green, reminiscent of an olive in a martini, which, according to Pantone's Fall 2009 report “makes all other colors come alive.”

Honey Yellow — a warm and welcoming yellow with a hint of honeyed beige. A perfect partner to Burnt Sienna for a wintry feel.

Crème Brûlée — needs no explanation for those who love its namesake, the delicious French desert. Providing one of fall’s classic neutrals, this paired down mix of gray and ivory beige looks good enough to eat!

Nomad — another timeless neutral which falls between light gray and beige serves as an anchor for more robust colors

Iron — represents the “new black” of the season. Neither a true gray nor brown it falls more in the category of a cross between slate and gunmetal. This serves as a grounding color for all other tones
