Pantone Announces Colour of the Year 2013
Global colour system manufacturer Pantone has announced its forecast Colour of the Year for 2013 as Emerald green (TPX 17-5641).
The vivid green hue is cited as the key focus of Pantone’s collaborative cosmetics range with French beauty brand Sephora, to be launched in the spring, as well as forthcoming fashion collections by American designers Tracy Reese and Nanette Lepore.
Emerald replaces Honeysuckle, a reddish pink honeysuckle tone, which was colour of the year for 2012. For more on the increasing popularity of jewel-toned hues, read the Stylus report Gemstones: Precious Hues.
