Pantone: Fall 2016 colours rooted in “strength, confidence, and complexity”

pantone-mainPantone Color Institute has spoken—blues dubbed ‘Riverside’ and ‘Airy’ are leading the colour palette for the fall.

“Blue skies represent constancy, as they are always above us,” says Pantone executive director, Leatrice Eiseman. “Greys give a feeling of stability and red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot pinkish purples and spicy mustard yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.”

Eiseman says pops of vibrant colours and anchoring earth tones will appear in fall collections for both men and women, acting as playful, but structured departures from more typical fall shades.

The top colours for men’s and women’s fashion for fall 2016 are:

  • Pantone 17­4028 Riverside
  • Pantone 14-4122 Airy Blue
  • Pantone 17-3914 Sharkskin
  • Pantone 18-1550 Aurora Red
  • Pantone 16-1318 Warm Taupe
  • Pantone 18-1630 Dusty Cedar
  • Pantone 18-5845 Lush Meadow
  • Pantone 14-0952 Spicy Mustard
  • Pantone 18-1340 Potter’s Clay
  • Pantone 17-3240 Bodacious
