Pantone Announces Fall 2014 Fashion Color Report

With the world of fashion all aflutter with fashion week creations from New York, London, Milan, Paris and other far-flung destinations, Pantone has announced their Fashion Color Report Fall 2014.


The theme of the fall color collection is “Color that transcends time and place" and in both women's and men's collections, designers created worlds of color that evoked both past and present. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantone Color Institute stated, “This is a season of untypical colors—more reflective of the imagination and ingenuity, which makes for an artful collection of colors and combinations not bound by the usual hues for fall. There is a feminine mystique that is reflected throughout the palette, inspired by the increasing need for women everywhere to create an individual imprint."
