Happy New York Fall Fashion Week Seekers! Pantone surveyed the hottest designers of NYC Fashion Week to determine the colors for 2011. I am loving this year's picks, especially fiery emberglow, romantic orchid hush and quarry.
This year, designers are paying close attention to texture, contrast and color. Menswear is being paired with feminine twists. "Designers take a painterly approach to fall 2011 by artfully combining bright colors with staple neutrals, reminiscent of how an artist would construct a stunning work of art," said Leatrice Elseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. "Much like a painter's masterpiece, there is a certain romance to this season's palette."
Bamboo, a standout yellow with a subtle green undertone, is big for Fall 2011, along with warm Emberglow, Honeysuckle, Phlox, Cedar, Deep Teal, Coffee Liqueur, Nougat, Orchid Hush and Quarry. Phlox, a deep purple with a hint of mystery, is a seasonal favorite of mine. I cannot wait to incorporate these fabulous colors into my interiors!
