Fashion Color Report Spring 2009

Spring 2009 will see the return of bright, cheerful colors in tempered combination with "deeper, translucent or neutral tones". Pantone Color Institute and New York fashion designers released a full report on the fashion colors, inspirations and must-haves for spring 2009.

Green is definitely the color of spring 2009 as it will invigorate us and our wardrobes with three different tones: the quintessential spring hue Vibrant Green, the calmer and sophisticated Dark Citron, and clean, clear Lucite Green with a subtle shimmer.

Pantone Fashion Color Report Spring 2009

The other colors in Spring 2009 Pantone report are: sparkling Palace Blue, derived from the classic navy, a soft, summery purple hue - Lavender, fun and optimistic Super Lemon yellow and Salmon Rose  pink, sensual and elegant Fuchsia Red and the new neutrals Rose Dust, a pink-beige shade, and Slate Gray with bluish-green undertones.

The Pantone fashion report includes also some of the wardrobe staples of the up-coming spring as seen by New York's designers. Pointing out some of my favorites these are: a blue dress (Laura Poretzky for ABAETÉ), a layered, colorful, flouncy skirt (Nanette Lepore), a printed shirtdress (for Twinkle by Wenlan), anything with paisley or graffiti print, and a Grass Green vinyl rain jacket (David Rodriguez).
