The fashion industry thrives on change, whether small changes or large ones, each season shows us different looks and, most importantly from Pantone’s point of view, colors. Shortly after the new collections show up in the fashion capitals )London, Paris, Milan, and New York) Pantone summarizes the color trends and reports on them.
This blog post summarizes the colors for the London Fashion Week (LFW) collections for the upcoming fall & winter season.
If fashion colors are always changing what importance has it for needlepoint? in general needlepoint is not fashion-driven. The long time it takes to create a finished piece and the heirloom quality of our pieces mitigate against this. You can take advantage of the popular colors in these fashion forecasts to add some current touches to your projects, especially to small ones.
What do we learn from this colorful collection? in the ten colors in the main palette, we see great bright colors, both primary and secondary colors. When picking threads, you can incorporate this palette by looking towards brighter, purer, and more saturated colors instead of muted tones. These bright colors will be especially good choices for focal points.
Below these ten colors, you’ll find four core classics. Pantone says that these colors “transcend the seasons.” I’m intrigued by them as possibilities for background colors. I could easily see the extremely pale pink or black as a great background to those bright colors of the main palette. The grey, although neutral, might be a bit harder to use. The final color, a yellow-green, is one I find harder to like, even though I can see how nicely it fits with the other colors.
Try to incorporate these colors in your new projects.
