I’m certainly not an expert, but the Pantone Fall 2017 Colour Trends, seem to influence how we view colour, in both fashion, and jewelery! Watch for these colours!! You’ll see them in the stores, the street, and in magazines!
According to Pantone:
“Every season the team at the Pantone Color Institute evaluates the colours shown by fashion designers in their collections at New York Fashion Week. This information is then used to create the PANTONE Fashion Color Report where we highlight the top 10 colors for men’s and women’s fashion for the upcoming season. For the first time ever we have added London Fashion Week to our seasonal color reportage.”
“There is a commonality between the colors we are seeing on the runway in New York and London, says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. However, individuality is evident and we are seeing a distinct difference between the shows in the two cities in the way these same colors are being combined.”
Note: If you click on the Pantone link, you will get a clearer view of the colour swatches.
Paris beats to their own drum, but what about Canada, eh? Do we follow New York, or London, or Paris, or somewhere in-between? Only the fashionistas know for sure!
I need to use the Pantone Fall 2017 Colour Trends, to make some fabulous beadwork! I’ve never really been a trend follower, but I’ll use it as a personal challenge. Should I design a new intuitive bead embroidery piece (but first, check out the one I showed you last week! Will that do?)? How about looming, bead-weaving, stringing, wire wrapping, or a beaded art doll? There’s also leather, and micro-macrame! So many choices, and so little time! What’s a girl to do? It’s apparent, that some super-sleuthing around the BeadFX store and site is in order!
Meanwhile, here are a couple of sites that are illustrating the colour trends with fashion! I’ll save the jewelery trend ones for another day!
I’m not prepared to change my wardrobe, over the Pantone Fall 2017 Colour Trends, but I do love the luscious, greyed down colours. My favourites, from New York, are Golden Lime, Shaded Spruce, and Navy Peony. Who’s ever heard of a navy peony? There I go, with blue and green again, but I can’t help it! I grew up in Vancouver, B.C., surrounded by blue and green, with just a touch of grey. It’s only natural! But then again, who could resist Ballet Slipper (from New York), or Toast (from across the pond)?
