Pantone: Spring 2016 colours are a “transporting and transformative canvas”

SB_PANTONE-Fashion-Color-ReCome next spring, designers will use their colour palette to convey a sense of calm, tranquility, and relaxation, says Pantone Color Institute.

“Colours this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves,” said Leatrice Eiseman, its executive director.

“With our culture still surrounded by so much uncertainty, we are continuing to yearn for those softer shades that offer a sense of calm and relaxation.”

Urban design and lush vegetation will also inspire the colours seen on the world’s fashion runways. Think Cuba and other destinations south of the border and the vibrant colour statements that greet visitors, offset by quieting, classic, and more natural tones.

Pantone 13-1520 Rose Quartz
