Pantone Colors

Just announced today is Pantone's Spring 2012 top color, Tangerine Tango. Which reminds me of this post and my love affair with a similar color, poppy. This Spring's fashion color report is chock-full of great colors. Solar Power, a mustard-y yellow, Cockatoo, a minty-ish green, Soladite, which is simlar to a navy, Caberet, a fushia pink, a lavender Bellflower, and much more. 

Pantone based these top color choices on September's Spring Fashion Week in NY. Pantone took some of the best designers' showcases and based this upcoming season's choice on what seemed to encompass the true colors of Spring. Below are a few designers creations using Pantone's hot colors and their own sketches from pieces off their Spring runway.

What would be your top color for Spring? I think they hit the nail on the head for me with Tangerine Tango, and maybe add a little of that Solar Power and Driftwood in for good measure. And is anyone wanting to try that beautiful Rebecca Minkoff number on? It looks so fabulous.
