Pantone, the renowned global color company, designates the London Fashion Week colors for Fall / Winter 2021 as “blends of heritage and extravagance” to offer a fresh perspective.
The top ten colors from the trendsetter and color consultant include tints of blue, yellow, orange, green, red, pink, and brown. Colors ranging from vibrant orange and delicate pink to grass green, which Pantone says underscores “ingenuity and ingenuity” and encourages “paradoxical artistic statements.”
Pantone adds that the colors for Fall / Winter 2021 mix “the playful with the practical” and reflect the revitalized desire to create, injecting a contemporary perspective on heritage or imposing an urban style on nature and the great outdoors.
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, said in a statement: “A color palette of encouraging shades that reflects the natural environment in our local environment, inspires our creative energy and awakens desire from a perspective that is replenished in the application of colors. A perspective in which whim and charm are combined with pragmatism, and where our idea about the conception of inheritance and our connection with nature are reinforced.
