Pantone® released its Top Ten list of colors for Spring 2016 this past week during New York's Fashion Week. The theme for the Spring season is: A Transporting and Transformative Collection.
"Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves. With our culture still surrounded by so much uncertainty, we are continuing to yearn for those softer shade that offer a sense of calm and relaxation. This calming color pallet with a few energetic colors has been influenced by the world of art and the contrast of the urban landscape against lush vegetation." ~ Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

This season's pallet was inspired by the world of art as well as the contrast between urban design and lush vegetation. It's all about transporting the wearer to a tranquil environment giving way to curiosity and exploration  

The pallet features six new colors from Pantone: Rose Quartz, Peach Echo, Serenity, Limpet Shell, Lilac Gray and Iced Coffee. 

Rose Quartz - A gentle shade of pale pink tops the charts for Spring 2016
Peach Echo - A warm pinkish-orange
Serenity - A calming sky blue like the name suggests.
Snorkel Blue - A marine-inspired blue that serves as an anchor for the pallet.
Buttercup - Sunshine and happiness in a rich, buttery hue.
Limpet Shell - A cool and tranquil shade of aqua.
Lilac Gray - A soft and subtle neutral with a hint of purple.
Fiesta - A warm, fiery and exciting red.
Iced Coffee - A warm neutral color that combines well with others in the pallet.
Green Flash - A bright green with a yellow undertone.
