‘Marina’ and ‘Bluebell’ are among the blue tones in the current Pantone Fashion Color Report for autumn / winter 2017. They fit in perfectly with the colour spectrum of the aquamarine, which, on account of its sparkling lustre in the colours of the sea, is regarded as the “world’s favourite stone”. For the first time, the report by Pantone identifies two colour ranges for the autumn, oriented toward the New York and London Fashion Weeks. Whilst New York chose a bold, radiant blue in ‘Marina’, London made a somewhat more cautious choice in the delicate ‘Bluebell’.
there are two things we often long for: sunshine, and the opportunity to relax. Fortunately, the colour trends for the forthcoming spring and summer season promise both at the same time!
Every year, the Pantone Color Institute publishes current colour trends, and the entire world of fashion allows itself to be guided by them. The theme for sun-drenched days next year is ‘en plein air’. Our everyday life, which seems to be becoming more and more dynamic, demands a good deal of us. So hues named ‘aquamarine’, ‘lucite green’ and ‘tangerine’ give us exactly the compensation we need.
It goes without saying that Mother Nature can easily keep pace when it comes to colour trends. A glance into my treasure chamber provides proof of that!
The colour ‘aquamarine’ marks the beginning of the Pantone range. Is there a gemstone lover who is not familiar with the stone of the same name?
