Radiant Orchid: Color Of The Year

color of the year pantone

The good folks of Pantone have released the color of the year. 2014 is the year of radiant orchid or as they classify it as PANTONE 18-3224. I had my basement that color many years ago. It took over two coats to cover it. So get ready for a summer of purple laced fashion. Green is emerald is out or as it better known as PANTONE 17-5641.

Radiant Orchid’s rosy undertones radiate on the skin, producing a healthy glow when worn by both men and women. A dazzling attention-getter, Radiant Orchid permeated the runways during the spring 2014 fashion shows and is already making its way onto the red carpet. Fashion designers featured in the PANTONE Fashion Color Report Spring 2014, including Emerson by Jackie Fraser-Swan, Juicy Couture and Yoana Baraschi, are incorporating Radiant Orchid into their spring collections and variations of this hue will carry into men’s and women’s clothing and accessories throughout next year.
