A few evenings ago my uncle, three cousins, and I ventured to Menemsha to enjoy some pizza and watch the setting sun. The clouds had parted ways for the first time since a storm hit the island, and though the winds were still strong, the sky evoked a peaceful calm. Brush strokes of gray colors produced a beautiful picture in the early evening.
As the hour progressed the sky’s color splashed against the water and into spectators’ eyes.
The colors of the sunset are personally inspiring. They also artistically relate to Pantone’s Fall 2010 fashion color palette.
Professionals note that “vivid colors are juxtaposed in inventive ways, creating arresting and extraordinary color combinations.” The palette is described as having “transporting qualities” with “lively colors that conjure images of travel and adventure.”
3 of my favorite colors in Pantone’s Fall 2010 palette include:
Lagoon, this season’s turquoise – "Pantone’s 2010 color of the year – is guaranteed to add a tropical splash. A great color for fall and winter escapes, Lagoon is a popular hue, especially in accessories, pairing dynamically with all shades of red." (Please refer to F-F’s Hawaiin post featuring this color)
"Reminiscent of a radiant sunset on a brisk autumn evening, Golden Glow, an earthy, deepened shade of yellow, creates a retro look with Purple Orchid or Woodbine."
"Oyster Gray, a classic neutral that grounds the Palette."
See these colors in action in the NYT’s T Magazine (Women’s Fall Fashion 2010) Going Places spread
Artistic Ensembles reflect the trend of layering, layering, layering (also refer to F-F’s Uncover a Love for Layering post).
This T Magazine fashion spread features an eye-full of inspiration. Just as Pantone’s color palette creates “arresting and extraordinary combinations” so too do these styles piled high with eclectic trends.
Shine like the sun this fall, as you paint your fall wardrobe with this featured color palette; and make a new statement each day with an artistic affinity for layering.
