Global colour system manufacturer Pantone has announced its forecast Colour of the Year for 2015 as Marsala (TPX 18-3438).
The earthen, reddish-brown hue is cited as the key focus of Pantone's annual limited-edition collaborative cosmetics range with French beauty brand Sephora, soon to be launched in spring, as well as forthcoming collections by American fashion designers Dennis Basso and Creatures of the Wind. See our Women's Catwalk S/S 15: Colour report for more coverage.
Marsala replaces Radiant Orchid, a deep pink-purple tone, which was colour of the year for 2014. For more exciting projects and themes set to influence the colour landscape for 2015, look to our Colour Spectrum concepts for S/S 15 and A/W 15-16.
