TRENDS // PANTONE - REVEAL . A/W 2016-17

Pantone is the world-renowned authority on color and provider of color systems and leading technology for the selection and accurate communication of color across a variety of industries. The PANTONE® name is known worldwide as the standard language for color communication from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer. 

For Autumn/Winter 2016/17 we explore color that is “real” and “unreal”, absent and present and a mixology of what is in between. We are polarized between colors that are simple, honest and unassuming and stronger more saturated tones that make a bold statement. For those in the middle? A third platform of color that connects and bridges our desire to be sober or intoxicated, quiet or loud – or both at the same time.

Here is their recent inspirational color forecast trend report, REVEAL for the F/W 2016-17 season. A total of eight color trend boards, complete with surface, material and RTW visuals for the men’s and womenswear markets. For their complete trend report, it is available here.

An intuitive and instinctual adaptation to a variety of habitats…Animal Instincts.

Pearly white and onyx tones harmoniously mingle within intricate colorations of taupe grey. Platinum silver accentuates bold edges. A stylistic sixth sense…Animal Instincts.





    GRAPHIC STATEMENT    

Modern and bold…Graphic Statement. Outrageous orange and denim blue shades of unequivocal utterance and illustrative allegation accentuate subtle nuances of light yellow. Dark pastel blue and classic rosy pink saturations allow surreptitious ideas to unfold with ease and sensibility. Coral red and light orange displayed on a background of black and white adds a modernistic edge. Explicitly expressive and astute.
