A mixture of vitality, relaxation and the great outdoors

Laurie Pressman, PANTONE Color Institute, September 16, 2016

From colors that are bright and vivid to those that convey a sense of earthiness, our top 10 colors for spring 2017 are reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature. In conjunction with New York Fashion Week, the PANTONE Fashion Color Report provides a comprehensive overview of fashion designers' use of color in their spring 2017 collections.

Featuring the top 10 shades seen on the runway, the PANTONE Fashion Color Report is your essential color guide to the season.

"One of the things that we saw this year, was a renewed sense of imagination in which color was appearing in context that was different than the traditional," said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. "Reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature, our Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report evokes a spectrum of emotion and feeling. From the warmth of sunny days with Primrose Yellow to the invigorating feeling of breathing fresh mountain air with Kale and the desire to escape to pristine waters with Island Paradise, designers applied color in playful, yet thoughtful and precise combinations to fully capture the promises, hope and transformation that we yearn for each spring."
