Pantone's 2017 Top 10 Spring Fashion Colors

Posted by Gordon Weller GIA GG on

100 East Fine Jewelry is all about color. We specialize in selling jewelry pieces containing colored gemstones or with multiple colors of metal. That’s why we follow, with vested interest, the bi-annual Pantone Fashion Color Report which is issued each spring and fall.

About Pantone’s Fashion Color Reports

Each year since the 1990’s, Pantone has published bi-annual fashion color reports covering the spring/summer and fall/winter fashion seasons. In these reports, the Pantone Color Institute reveals how fashion designers are using color in their upcoming collections. In September, 2016 in conjunction with New York Fashion Week , the Fashion Color Report Spring 2017 was announced.  In case you missed last September’s release, below you’ll find the top 10 trending 2017 colors being used in this spring/summer fashion season. Though the color of the year isn’t always included in the top 10, Greenery, Pantone 15-0343 (see our blog on the Pantone Color of the Year) made it into this year's selection.

Pantone's Introduction of the Top 10 Colors for Spring 2017

As reported on the Pantone website: 

“A mixture of vitality, relaxation and the great outdoors.

One of the things that we saw this year, was a renewed sense of imagination in which color was appearing in context that was different than the traditional," said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the  Pantone Color Institute. "Reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature, our Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report evokes a spectrum of emotion and feeling. From the warmth of sunny days with PANTONE 13-0755 Primrose Yellow to the invigorating feeling of breathing fresh mountain air with PANTONE 18-0107 Kale and the desire to escape to pristine waters with PANTONE 14-4620 Island Paradise, designers applied color in playful, yet thoughtful and precise combinations to fully capture the promises, hope and transformation that we yearn for each Spring."
