PANTONE releases trending colours for Autumn 2017


Remember how we all readily embraced Rose Quartz and Serenity as the Colour of the Year in 2016? And how we all collectively drew a gasp of horror when PANTONE named Greenery as 2017’s Colour of the Year? As fresh and vibrant it might be, the hue just reminds us too much of Kermit and Pepe memes. Nevertheless, as PANTONE is the leading colour authority, we’re inclined to sit down and listen to what they have to say on all things colour-related.

Recently, PANTONE released a report on the top 10 trending colours in fashion shortly after fashion week concluded in New York and London. The Fashion Color Report for Fall 2017 is one of two semi-annual colour reports that reflect colour trends in the fashion world, and it can be helpful for anyone looking to update their wardrobe with fresher hues without straying from familiar silhouette. This time round, they pulled colours from not just New York, but also London. It’s also super handy if you’re working on anything creative, be it building websites (remember the ubiquitous Tumblr pink?) or just looking for home decor inspiration, as the inclusion of a trending colour is a quick way to keep up with the times.

Key colours in this report include a vibrant cherry red, a soft ballet slipper pink, an ever-dependable navy blue, and a rich forest green. It looks like pastel pink isn’t going away any time soon, and it serves as a striking touch against classical autumnal shades like wine red or a buttery brown.
