Pantone Spring 2018 Color Report

Last September Pantone’s trend forecasting for spring 2018 and it couldn’t be more playful and vibrant. Now winter is almost over and we all dream about the smell of flowers. This time I bring you a gift guide inspired by the Pantone color palette for the New York Fashion Week Spring 2018.


Open the door to good weather. I know how unpredictable this station is, it ranges from sunny and beautiful days to gray and rainy mornings. Our house loves this time of year because we store the heavy fabrics, the warm carpets and everything that has to do with winter and bring out the freshest and most dynamic side of the decoration.

Let’s play outside

After several months living mostly indoors, huddled around a good fire or letting the afternoon pass on the couch, it is time to look outside and bring that vitality to our home. Let natural light reach all corners and make plants your best allies for this season. Bouquets are essential to decorate the dining table, a corner of the bedroom or over the fireplace. Natural or not, they are energy and optimism. 

PANTONE Fashion Color Trend Report

Each season the team at the Pantone Color Institute creates the PANTONE Fashion Color Trend Report; a color overview highlighting the top colors fashion designers showing at NY Fashion Week will be featuring in their collections for the upcoming season. With color on the catwalk, a key indicator of the color stories we can expect to see showing up across all areas of design, the PANTONE Fashion Color Trend Report is your easily accessible guide to the season’s most important color trends.


What does the Spring 2018 color palette mean?

“The desire for colorful self-expression is a key take away for Spring 2018. The color story is wildly divergent and we see a kaleidoscopic bounty of uplifting shades and feel-good tones. There is a feeling of optimism and confidence driving a new vitality into fashion trends. That doesn’t mean that we don’t continue to look for more neutral or classic shades as while simple, these core basics are seasonal essentials, working well on their own as well as providing the landscape for the color complexity.

Along with this recognized freedom to explore and experiment with more color, fashion, and the people who interact with it, no longer want to feel limited by traditional color guidelines. Gender and seasonal borders continue to be non-issues when it comes to color. Untypical spring shades that make for complex and original combinations, communicates the consumer’s desire to experiment with color all year round without any restrictions. The color story for Spring 2018 is a perfect reflection of this new sentiment.
