The Fall Blues

The Top Ten Most Purchased Colors list came out and it looks like we're in for a cooly colorful Fall season. 13.5% of designers bought the color Blue Iris for their fall collection garments, a color that was also named Pantone's Color of the Year for fashion, home, and cosmetics. With rankings 2-5 being different cool shades of Royal Lilac, Shady Glade Green, Caribbean Sea Blue, and Twilight Blue it seems as if designers are pushing for a calm, relaxed state of mind for the latter (and hopefully less volatile) half of 2008. The bottom 5 consisted of more traditional fall colors such as Aurora Red, Ochre Yellow, Burnt Orange, Shitake Brown, and Withered Rose.
