Spring 2011 Pantone Colors are here!

Every Fall & Spring the world gears up for New York Fashion Week. As event planners, we keep an eye out for this report as it truly sets the tone of colors for the upcoming season. Your major bridal houses will use this palette for bridal fashions for your bridal party and accessories. The new report for Spring 2011 Report gave a kickstart to Fashion week last week and the colors are absolutely stunning!

For the last seventeen years Pantone has surveyed New York designers and experts to bring us the color trends for the upcoming season. The Spring 2011 report is appropriately called: Spring 2011 – An Exotic Journey.

Here is an excerpt from the newly released report: Citing exotic destinations like Africa, India, Peru and Turkey as inspiration for spring 2011, designers continue to satisfy consumers’ need to escape everyday challenges with intriguing color combinations that transport them to foreign lands.

"The colors designers have chosen for the spring season present an interesting marriage of unexpected warm and cool tones," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. "By cleverly combining complementary colors, those that are opposites on the color wheel, they have created a striking intensity to the palette. These unique color combinations make it possible for consumers to pair existing pieces in colors traditionally associated with fall, with new favorites to punch up springtime wardrobes."


And the new colors are:

How funny that some of these colors have come "in" again. Lavender and Silver Cloud are the colors we're using for our June wedding.
