PANTONE COLOR TREND REPORT SS/2018

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Pantone LLC, an X-Rite company, today announced the PANTONE Fashion Color Trend Report Spring 2018 edition for New York Fashion Week. Published for the fashion industry by the Pantone Color Institute, a trend forecasting and color consultancy, the report features the top colors we can expect to see from fashion designers on the runway for the upcoming spring collections.  The Spring 2018 edition features the top twelve colors for men’s and women’s fashion, highlighting a more multi-faceted color story that expands the opportunity for self-expression. For the first time this year, the report also includes four classic colors, which transcend seasons and provide structure to any wardrobe.

“As consumers continue to embrace color, designers are recognizing the need to show more color in their collections.” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “In order to reflect the consumers’ ongoing fascination with color, we broadened the direction for Spring 2018 to show where hues are headed by including 12 outstanding call out colors as well as four spring classics.”  Untypical spring shades that make for complex and original combinations expand the opportunity for self-expression and communicate the consumer desire to experiment with color all year round. The palette for Spring 2018 is a perfect reflection of this new sentiment.  To learn more about the 2018 colors, please continue reading after the break. (more…)

ALL EYES ON NYFW!

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

New York Fashion Week was characterized by bold fashions and even bolder eyes.  Makeup artist, Pat Montelongo, went for glamour at Tom Ford (left) as she lined models’ top lids with thick kohl liner.  “We didn’t want a straight line, we wanted a little bit of that curve to it so its not going out at an angle. It just goes softly hugging the eye and then just around the nice soft edge,” she shared.

To soften the look Montelongo diluted black glitter eyeshadow with eye gloss.  The dewy look achieved with eye gloss was definitely en vogue at Public School and Prabal Gurung (center, top and bottom). “The gloss melts into skin and moves around with the lighting,” explains Grace Lee, makeup artist for Maybelline New York, who achieved the look with Maybelline’s Shine Shot.

At Marc Jacobs (right), however, Diane Kendal‘s dramatic liner created six cat eye options.  “We’re using the black eyeliner in the waterline and using the magic marker, a pen eyeliner, and using that on top of the lid extending out and underneath — going into the inner corner. On some girls, it’s slightly thicker on the outside to really give that exaggeration.”
