This season’s palette reflects an over all desire for a “sense of balance”. We seek balance in so many areas of our life, work and home. It seems to be a current theme for people of all walks of life so why would it not be revealed in the colors we see on the runway? “We don’t often think about color as an expression of balance. For Spring/Summer 2013 we have a wonderful balancing of colors,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.
Inspired by the 50’s and 60’s, black and white photographs as well as the dusty, muted hues of vintage color photography, the colors of nature and the emergence of the cultural influences of Asia, this season’s palette reminds us that color and clothing is a means of self-expression. And for the gents, let’s hear it for soothing neutrals and energizing brights!
