Hot Colors- Spring 2008

Pantone says,

Refreshing splashes of invigorating brights punctuate
classic, versatile neutrals as designers offer a playful
spring palette for endless exploration and creative
combinations. Variations on popular colors such as
energizing red, cool, waterborne blue and eco-friendly
greens also play a key role this season.

“The spring ‘08 color palette perfectly reflects the
cheerfulness of the season,” said Leatrice Eiseman,
executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.
“Stabilizing neutrals combined with pops of brighter
colors to create unique, distinctive looks are the basis
for a great spring and summer wardrobe.”

And here are the top colors Pantone picks for fashion next Spring. I like Cantelope and Snorkel Blue.

The words are a little blurry, so here’s a list of the colors names and Pantone numbers:

Golden Olive (16-0639)
Spring Crocus (17-3020)
Rococco Red (18-1652)
Pink Mist (13-2805)
Croissant (16-0924)
Freesia (14-0852)
Cantaloupe (15-1239)
Daiquiri Green (12-0435)
Snorkel Blue (19-4049)
Silver Gray (14-000)

    Jen, thanks SO much for this info…I tried to access this page on the Pantone web site, and it comes up unavailable. Great. Just when I’m researching color trends for a design, and need to be done NOW.

    You saved the day!!!!

    I have 3 weddings to go to in 2 months time. One is my son. I have been looking for something casual but classy. I have been seeing tons of black and white dressess, skirts and tops. Is black and white appropriate for a wedding?
