You know that the last year was tough for me, and I abandoned my English blog for a long time. But now I'm back, and I want to share with you some posts which I didn't have a chance to publish here. Today I will post about Trendy Colors Spring Summer 2015. A few my collages and commentaries of the Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute® Leatrice Eiseman.
Since the report was made by the Pantone Color Institute®, I will traditionally begin my post with a quotation of its Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman, which expressed the essence of the upcoming season color trends: humanity is "out of breath", and requires some rest. It's not the first season, when we see some stability. There are no shocking trend sensations. If we can't make our lives less intense, we can find relaxation at least in clothes, wearing convenient and comfortable things and prefer those colors that soothe us. Not the last role, of course, plays a physical perception of color: bright colors can only enhance the already vibrant mood, exhausting us emotionally. That is why, after the minimalistic, comfortable to wear, cut, modern fashion consistently includes neutral, natural, and pastel colors. And even the bright summer shades fade out a bit. That's what Leatrice Eiseman says:
“Many feel compelled to be connected around the clock because we are afraid we’ll miss something important. There is a growing movement to step out and create ‘quiet zones’ to disconnect from technology and unwind, giving ourselves time to stop and be still. Color choices follow the same minimalistic, ‘en plein air’ theme, taking a cue from nature rather than being reinvented or mechanically manipulated. Soft, cool hues blend with subtle warm tones to create a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.”
The lead color for women for the Spring/Summer 2015 season is Aquamarine. This is an airy blue with a dreamy feel. Cool and calming, ethereal Aquamarine. is a shade with a wet and watery feel. Open and expansive, this restful blue also acts as a stress reducer. Mixes in the best way with Glasier Gray and the main color of the year Marsala.
An invigorating turquoise, Scuba Blue conveys a sense of carefree playfulness. Even though a cool shade, the vibrancy of Scuba Blue adds a splash of excitement to the palette. Scuba Blue offers a feeling of escape as it is reminiscent of a tropical ocean. This stirring and energizing shade takes us off to an exotic paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy. The best combo with Classic Blue and Lucite Green.
Generally not thought of as a fashion color, though it does come back from time to time, Lucite Green is a soothing green shade whose time has really come again. Fresh and clarifying, cool and refreshing, Lucite Green has a minty glow. Light in weight and also in tone, Lucite Green seems almost transparent. Looks perfect with Classic Blue and Scuba Blue.
Reliable and thoughtful, Classic Blue inspires calm, confidence and harmony. Serving as an anchor to the Spring/Summer 2015 palette, Classic Blue is a shade that is strong and reliable. Just as with the sea, because of its waterborne qualities, this Classic Blue is perceived as thoughtful and introspective. Mixes harmoniously with Sandstone and Marsala.
Bringing balance to the coolness of the Spring/Summer 2015 color range is Toasted Almond. A sun-tanned neutral, Toasted Almond offers comforting warmth and is indicative of a spontaneous spring, summer feeling. Timeless and versatile, Toasted Almond is an organic shade that speaks to authenticity and all that is natural. The best match for lavender shades such as Lavender Herb.
Aptly named, Strawberry Ice is suggestive of a cooling and refreshing delicacy, yet its warmth as a color is quite appealing. Subtle and charming, Strawberry Ice is an ideal shade for Spring/Summer 2015. Both tasty and tasteful, Strawberry Ice is a confection color that evokes a feeling of being “in the pink,” emitting a flattering and healthy glow. Looks gorgeous with Tangerine and Toasted Almond.
Spontaneous and gregarious, Tangerine is a juicy orange shade that is energizing, yet not jarring to the eye. Versatile Tangerine is striking enough to stand on its own and adds vitality to a printed pattern. Good natured and friendly, but with a tangy edge, this fun-loving color invites a smile. Matches perfectly with Toasted Almond and Strawberry Ice.
Just as the name implies, Custard is a delicious and delectable yellow. Sweet and sunny, Custard is a cheering tone that brings thoughts of pleasant relaxation and comfort food. Engaging with its soft and mellow warmth and full of good feelings, subtle Custard has an affable and easy disposition. Looks "tasty" with Classic Blue.
Interesting on its own and a wonderful contrast for other hues, Marsala serves as the foundation to the Spring/Summer 2015 palette. Sensual and bold, delicious Marsala is a daringly inviting tone that nurtures; exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind and soul. Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this robust shade incorporates the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness. Marsala is the main shade of 2015 year. The best pair for Sandstone and Classic Blue.
More dominant for men than women in Spring/Summer 2015, Glacier Gray is an unobtrusive gray that contrasts and enhances; bouncing off other shades without taking away from them as it slips into the background to allow other colors to take center stage. Nature’s most perfect neutral, Glacier Gray is a shade that is timeless. Quietly assuring and peacefully relaxing, Glacier Gray, is above all, constant. Perfect combo for Dask Blue.
