Autumn Winter 2010 Colour Report

Autumn Winter 2010 Colour Report
Every season, Pantone produce a colour report which all fashion designers use when designing their collections. I've summarised the top 10 Pantone colours for Autumn Winter 2010 below with guidance for the seasons that can wear each colour.
  • Pantone 18-0538
  • Described as Army Green
  • Soft and muted colour so it lends itself to Summers and Autumns.
  • Summers - go for a cooler shade with more blue or grey added and mix with greys and soft dusty violets.
  • Autumns - mix with warm purples and browns.
Images from the Catwalk:
Purple Orchid (Pantone 18-3027)
  • Pantone 18-3027
  • A deep and musky shade of purple.
  • Quite a cool colour so great for Winters and Summers.
  • Winters - opt for a deep, clear shade.
  • Summers - look for lighter and softer shades and pair with light neutrals to make the overall effect more delicate. 
Images from the catwalk:
Rose Dust
  • Pantone 14-1107
  • A neutral that is a lighter take on the traditional Autumn grey.
  • Useful colour for investment pieces as they will carry you through to Spring.
  • Cool colour so great for Summers and Winters.
  • Autumns - choose a warmer shade and pair with warm purples, plums and browns near your face.
  • Springs - look for warm shades and pair with brighter colours from your palette.
Images from the Catwalk:
Lipstick Red
  • Pantone 19-1764
  • A deep dramatic red.
  • Great for Autumns as it's deep, rich and warm.
  • Springs - go for a brighter shade.
  • Winters - choose a cooler shade with more blue in it. Team with Lagoon (shown later) for a dramatic contrast.
  • Summers - choose a light, cool shade and pair with grey navy.
Golden Glow
  • Pantone 15-1050
  • An earthy, deep shade of yellow.
  • Great for Autumns.
  • Springs - choose a lighter, brighter shade.
  • Pair with shades of blue or for a retro look, wear with Purple Orchid or Woodbine.
