While Pantone has yet to announce their Color of the Year for 2023, there’s still good news: the Spring/Summer Color Trend Report is here! Now that New York Fashion Week is over, we have the pleasure of looking ahead at what colors will grace our closets, but most importantly, our homes in the upcoming year.
In true Pantone fashion, their color palette choices are carefully curated based on our life experiences over the past year(s). Recently, the normalcy of our lives was shaken up, sending us down a slippery slope of uncertainty. Now that things have finally settled a bit, we’re stepping out more confidently, looking ahead to untapped possibilities. Because of this, it’s really no surprise that this new palette is described as one that ranges from “chaos to quiet and celebrates a newfound freedom and the excitement of trying something new.”
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, puts it like this:
“Colors for Spring/Summer 2023 are recalibrated for the new era we are entering. Blending escapism with reality, wholesomeness, and joy, we embrace the exploration of extreme contrast in mood and color. There is utility and basic-ness to this season’s color story, while at the same time, there is an uplifting vital sense of play that comes through.”
