Designing with Pantone

As fashion week kicks off from New York to London and Milan to Paris, we have our eyes on the runway watching 2017’s trends roll out. But we’re not the only ones! Pantone recently released their Top 10 Colors for 2017 and we are totally feeling it. Taking inspiration from the worlds of fashion and design, we’re planning our own collection for the upcoming year. Scroll through and see what’s on our minds…

We love Primrose Yellow as a stand out for spring designs with Pink Yarrow and Flame as gorgeous complimentary shades to round out a brilliant palette. Used all together, this color palette is imbued with personality, optimism and invites us to celebrate sunny spring days. Whether you’re inspired by Emilio Pucci’s combo of yellow sequins and chiffon, or prefer Dolce & Gabbana’s colorful floral motif, spring is going to be a bright affair!

From Lanvin to Mulberry, we watched as models walked down the runway clad in monochromatic blue ensembles. From the denim-inspired Niagara to the invigorating Island Paradise, we loved these cool blue hues. They definitely set the tone for luxe-comfort this spring season. Our top pick for 2017 is the Lapis Blue. So bold and energetic, this stunning shade is sure to turn heads at any event!

Of course all designers need their arsenal of neutrals. Moving away from blush as a staple neural, Spring 2017 introduced the taupe-like Hazelnut balanced out by the light pink Pale Dogwood. We saw designers at No.21 and Missoni working with a spectrum of these shades for their spring collections. At Max Mara and Etro, the same range of neutrals were enhanced with lively green tones, from a light Greenery shade to a deeper Kale color. We love the transitional feel of this palette, reconnecting us with nature and a gentle reminder that spring is about to bloom.

As the seasons move forward and we plan for our 2017 collection, we’re looking to the innovative fields of fashion and design to guide our designs. What are you looking to use this coming year with your clients? Do you think Primrose Yellow will steal the show this spring or are you leaning towards Lapis Blue? We’d love to hear your thoughts – leave us a comment!
