Pantone has released their Fall 2011 fashion color report and the results are both bright and neutral. Wait.. what? Bright AND neutral? Although it sounds odd when you say it, just look at the colors – they are simply beautiful. This year’s New York Fashion Week designers are using neutral colors like quarry, orchid hush, nougat and coffee liqueur combine with deep teal and cedar to evoke a feeling of comfort and warmth. Much like a painter creating a work of art though, they are adding romantic brights in phlox, honeysuckle, emberglow and bamboo to draw the eye and add the WOW factor. It’s going to be a colorful year!
