Pantone® yesterday released their fashion colors for fall 2014 during the first day of New York Fashion Week. The colors are described as ‘color that transcends time and space’. “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,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. 

Fall 2014 offers a diverse and adventurous color palette that reflects a feminine mystique.

The following are the top 10 colors for Fall 2014:

1.     Sangria - an exotic berry-bright shade of red 
2.     Aurora Red - a sophisticated red with blue undertones
3.     Radiant Orchid - The Pantone 2014 Color of the Year
4.     Mauve Mist - a romantic and feminine shade of purple
5.     Cypress - a majestic forestry green
6.     Bright Cobalt - a subtle twist on the traditional cobalt blue
7.     Royal Blue - a versatile and more complex shade of navy blue
8.     Aluminum - silver/grey stainless steel
9.     Cognac - classy and cultured brown hue
10.   Misted Yellow - a warm ray of sunshine

Pantone® is the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industry. The Fashion Color Report is used as a reference tool by designers in the fashion and home furnishings industry. The colors will be seen this fall in fashion and home, jewelry and cosmetics.
