Well, 2013 has not arrived yet but Pantone,already anticipates the color of next year. If 2012 was Tangerine Tango, 2013 would be Emerald. According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute of the Shade “is the tone most abundant in nature and the human eye sees more shades of green than any other color.”She adds, “This shade of universal appeal is reflected very well in fashion and interior design.”
Ans has already been announced a partnership Sephora + Pantone 2013 Color of the Year, as happened in 2012. The collection will hit retail stores and online in the United States in March 2013 and will have beauty products in Emerald color. The very Pantone has released some souvenirs with the color, which include mugs and iPhone cases.
The tone, in its many variations extols balance and calm. Hence, Leatrice takes the term “balancing act”, which seeks to exemplify not only the color, as the entire collection for 2013. “The expression ‘balancing act’ is something we all relate to as we strive to find harmony in the frantic pace of our everyday lives”.
With regard to fashion claims that “The same can be said for fashion as we look for balance between light and bright, classic and new. This season’s color palette emphasizes this need for balance, while at the same time allowing for individuality, self-expression and excitement.”
