Last week Pantone released it’s colour for 2014, Radiant Orchid.

You may remember it from my previous post of Spring 2014 colours. My daughters think it is ‘so pretty’ but I must admit it’s not my favourite colour and reminds me of ‘the blue rinse brigade’ from my childhood.

Instead with the PreFall collections showing,  I would rather focus on the colours we can expect to see for Autumn/Winter 2014-15. Pantone has not released their official colours yet but below is a guide from Lenzing who ‘supplies the global textile and nonwovens industry with high-quality man-made cellulose fibres’. These colours look far more exciting to me!

Then the Burberry Prorsum PreFall 14 show was posted on incorporating nearly all of these colours and I have forgotten about Radiant Orchid!
