Spring 2015: Pantone Color of the Year

As we head towards the blossoming splendor of Spring, it is time to begin a new life again. Fresh mix of bright and pastel colors and floral delights are the attractions of the season. Warmer months demand soft hues like white, cream, ocean blue, rosy pink and pale shades of green, yellow, and red in clothing and accessories. Nevertheless, black and white contribute to timeless glory in all seasons and temperatures.


With the arrival of New Year, Pantone Inc. has announced ‘Marsala’ to be the Color of the Year 2015. The shade is a reflection of wine red, as named after an Italian brand of fortified wine. It presents earthly richness and hints of brick-red. You can call it a subtle yet magnetic hue, which appeals to both men and women. Whether you go for a matt or glossy finish in Marsala, it will brilliantly fuse with other springy shades. It will appear as tiny rose buds on tree branches.
