Pantone has named MARSALA as the Colour of the Year for 2015!

Pantone® named MARSALA 18-1438 as the Colour of the Year for 2015 
December 4th, 2014

Marsala is described as "a naturally robust and earthy wine red" that will translate easily to fashion, beauty, home fashions and interiors.

This universally appealing colour is a rich red-brown with blue undertones which embodies both warmth and sophistication. Marsala is a natural, earthy colour that is sultry and seductive.

"It's a colour that you can mix with what you already own," said Leatrice Eisman, the executive director of the Pantone Institute. "You can add just a touch of it. That's the intent and purpose. It is not the colour that swallows the world." As an accent it pairs well with warmer taupes and grays, golden yellows, turquoise and teal as well as a vibrant range of blues.

Designers such as Daniel Silverstain, Dennis Basso and Hervé Léger by Max Azria featured Marsala during the Spring 2015 runway shows. Blake Lively was stunning when she wore it on the red carpet during the Cannes Film Festival in May 2014. Expect to see this hue paired together with other colours in floral prints, plaids and stripes. Fashion accessories such as sunglasses, purses, sunglasses and shoes will also feature Marsala.
