Radiant Orchid is Pantone’s Color of the Year 2014! Studying Fashion Marketing and Management in undergrad totally turned me into a trend nerd, so I always anxiously wait around for Pantone’s Color of the Year announcement. I love the soft yet energetic feel of Radiant Orchid. I think may even step out on a limb and say the color makes me feel a bit whimsy. It’s quite different but modern, and I think it will float nicely between men’s and women’s apparel, especially for the Spring. One of my friends jokingly commented on my Instagram page, “So it’s basically just purple pink lol.” I laughed, and thought to myself that it is purple pink, but it’s one of the most beautiful purple pink’s you will ever see (and hopefully wear!). In Pantone’s most recent Color of the Year’s, Tangerine Tango for 2012 and Emerald for 2013 veered nicely on the runways, so I can’t wait to see how the designers interpret Radiant Orchid. I’m also excited to see how the color will translate into everyday living as seen in the objects below. Come on 2014!
