There are seven fundamental types of catastrophes. Beauty is not one of them.
It’s no secret that Pantone is the world-renowned authority on color and provides color systems spanning a variety of industries in over 65 countries. Their name alone is the standard language for color communication as we know it and has been for over 40 years. Each year, in a European capital, Pantone hosts two meetings with reps from various nations’ color standards groups. They convene for two days of intense discussion, review, debate and presentations but in the end, they emerge having selected a color for the following year. The results are published in Pantone View ($450), which is the go-to guide of leading fashion designers, florists, and basically any company that makes products for the modern consumer. In other words, it’s EVERYTHING.
Last year, the color was Tangerine Tango, which I loved. This year, it’s Emerald Green – – when I think ‘Emerald Green’, I envision lush, sophistication, royal, decadence. Not your everyday color but it definitely adds a certain something to the right attire. Pair it with nude and the combination drips elegant refinement. Although, my first boyfriend bought me an emerald green lace dress that I hated, (despite picking it out)…it was lace too.. not cute at all.. I had no idea what I was doing style-wise in ’93.
But I digress….. here are my Pantone 2013 Color of the Year Selections…….
