Here is PANTONE®VIEW Colour Planner Summer 2016.  This color forecast takes us into another dimension of color, one with many color contradictions and no hard and fast color rules. Hues are fresh and lively, displaying a feeling of lightness and simplicity. Soft harmonies work in color families and can be graduated in steps and, at the same time, we also see some striking contrasts. In Spring/Summer 2016, as color enters into this new dimension, we not only see color, we experience and feel color. You can go here, to order the PANTONE®VIEW Colour Planner.

    CUT IT OUT   

Cut paper collages we’ve been seeing more and more of over the past few months. It’s a fantastic way to mix prints and show off your knowledge of other popular textile trends; think of it as the crazier version of the Block Party trend we highlighted last week. If this look is to over-the-top for your client base, simplify it by using prints with a smaller scale, and limiting the number of colors used in the overall design.

Daisies, whether photographic, painted, digitally warped or presented atop an abstract texture, designers are finding fresh ways to serve up this classic vintage flower.

Transitional print concept that spills over from Fall 2014, but with a lighter, more springlike color palette. One part floral, one part Ukrainian embroidery, with a dash of fairytale whimsy thrown in for good measure, these prints bring a fresh, bohemian take on a trend your Grandmother would likely adore. To keep things really authentic, make sure to include references to traditional embellishment techniques such as cross-stitch or beading.

    INNER CALM    

Tucked away miles from civilization, the Inner Calm man and woman live in a minimalist wood cabin where they have created a cocoon atmosphere in their home and way of dress. Knit heavy, multiple textures play an important role with chunky yarns everywhere. Nature factors in not only with natural fibers, but with fur pelts and abstract motifs inspired by the world around them. Neutral colors to keep it clean yet warm, and minimalist lines add a subtle modern edge.


The ultimate urban dweller is at home in an active setting. Just like the city they inhabit, their metropolis surroundings are reflected in their lustrous surfaces, sharp silhouettes, plenty of contrasting details, and an underlying reference to sport. This head-to-toe look is a conversation that embraces the mineral sleekness of the city with dimensional andÊtechnical elements. This story is a celebration of the sport if lifestyle with a decidedly urbane approach.


Old textile traditions emerge in design with decorative elements, creating a one-of-a-kind feel expressed by the Bloomsbury Set of intellectuals in London. Recalling the first half of the 20th century, the setting draws to mind the quarters of writer Virgina Woolf and painter Duncan Grant. A harmonious contrast occurs between folkloric stories and the surrounding environment, whether it be on anÊadventurous outing or upon return home. This story unfolds like family traditions that are carried from generation to generation, with a dreamy and adventurous spirit.


Uncharted territories, cozy corners, rustic surfaces, time-honored tribal traditions of the North, and tales untold of strong men and women, and their rugged adventures. Telling the story of a medieval romance, Kingdom is rooted in fairy tales coupled with a tough warrior reality and the will to conquer. With a harmonious contrast between pure air, aggressive barren surfaces, and enveloped green earth, this story is raw romance at its best.
