For the majority of 2013, Pantone had us all head over heels for Emerald Green, but that green is so last year. Say hello to 2014’s newest player, Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s color of the year for 2k14.
The hue-focused company selects the “color of the year” as a prediction for what we will be seeing in collections emerging from designer’s spring collections.
In the company’s annual announcement, Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, described the hue as “an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones” that “inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health.” Yep, we’re here for all of that!
What does this mean for you? It means you should look forward to loving this color unintentionally and look forward to an Essie output in Radiant Orchid.
Check out some items above from designers like Coach and Hervé Léger, who were already ahead of the curve when it came to incorporating the color into their designs.
