Each December color loves look forward to Pantone announcing their color of the year and this year…
…Marsala is Pantone’s pick for color of the year 2015. Released to the media today, this color made its debut via the Wall Street Journal.
Pantone describes the color as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red.” Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said the color would enrich the mind, body and soul.
“Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness,” Eiseman said in the release. “This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”
In order to arrive at its color of the year, Pantone said it seeks color influences around the world, including in the fashion and entertainment industries.
