While all of us are waiting for another unpredictable New York Fashion Week, Pantone Color Institute has kindly given us some tips on what to expect from our fall outfit palette.
On Thursday, the color experts released their NYFW Fall 2022 Trends Report, identifying the key colors for each season based on what designers are aiming for in their collections and the overall mood in the culture. According to authorities-on-color press release, the following fall color story reflects "our hybridized lifestyles and our contradictory yearnings as we continue forward into this new landscape."
These shades accurately illustrate our internal debate about whether to be comfortable or not comfortable, with shades that "support our need for nurturing and tactility" in addition to colors that show "our need to break free of restraint and embrace the joy of being alive".
For those days when we need a boost of energy, there are bright Rose Violet and Amazon, sensual Lava Falls, cheerful Orange Tiger and Waterspout, that reminds us about the sea and summer. And for those days when we yearn for home clothes, there is a cozy Caramel Café, a delicious Midnight and a homely warm Martini Olive.
The executive director of the Pantone Color Institute Leatrice Eiseman said in a statement that the palette "enables consumers to move fluidly between a range of contrasting shades, allowing them to spontaneously express who they are and how they feel on any given day."
The NYFW Fall 2022 palette below will help you set the mood both at home and on the street.
