From the warm and optimistic Oak Buff, to the military-inspired Dried Herb, and the deeply romantic Marsala -color of the year, the Fall 2015 palette is rooted in multi-faceted, androgynous colors that can be worn to portray effortless sophistication across men’s and women’s fashion, “it is the first time we are seeing a truly unisex color palette”, said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. This season displays an evolving landscape that weaves earthy neutrals with a range of bold color statements and patterns to reflect the natural world.

The colors are evocative of a love for nature and a timeless appreciation for warmth and security, which are conveyed through naturally inspired colors that remind us of things that are real and protective. This Fall, designers’ pay homage to progressive moments in American history -from the seductive 20’s to the bohemian hippie and modernists of the 60’s and 70’s, while stringing together an affection for colors and styling that are innately easy to wear by both men and women.


Pantone Fashion Color Report Fall 2015 Dried Herb & Stormy Weather 

An Olive Green shade once thought of as strictly Safari, Pantone 17-0627 Dried Herb has been elevated into a color we now perceive as sophisticated and chic. Closely related to nature, Dried Herb is an organic shade redolent of nature’s earthy fragrances, with a powerful presence. Reminiscent of the sky on a Gray overcast day, Pantone 18-4214 Stormy Weather is evocative and cool, and above all, constant. Implying quality and luxury. Stormy Weather is a poignant Blue Gray that is strong and protective, dignified and enduring.

Dried Herb is a rich saturated Green that can pair beautifully with many different shades or can stand alone in its own right. Pantone 17-0627 Dried Herb -my favorite hue of Green, and the color of cherished semi precious stone -Green Tourmaline, resonates beautifully evoking strength and style with depth across many design platforms -from fashion to interiors. A color that transcends time and place. Perennially stunning.
