Pantone Announces Color of the Year 2015


Global color authority Pantone has announced its annual Color of the Year for 2015: PANTONE 18-1438 Marsala, an earthy, dimensional wine-red. "While PANTONE 18-3224 Radiant Orchid, the captivating 2014 color of the year, encouraged creativity and innovation, Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Marsala colored the Spring 2015 runways this year, seen in everything from floral prints, to solid shades, to menswear. The rich hue accented jewelry and accessories, as well as the latest fashion trends.

Rich, radiant reds have been a burgeoning hair color trend over the past few months, and PANTONE 18-1438 Marsala provides an exciting new way to give clients a fresh, up-to-date look. The versatile shade is flattering on nearly all skin tones, pairing well with peachy pinks, golds, and smokey metallics. The complex, full-bodied Marsala exudes elegance and sophistication while still being young, fresh and gorgeous. Look for it in everything from lipstick and blush shades, to nail polishes, to hair color hues.
