The Pantone gods have spoken and Fall fashion week will be showing some pretty new colors
Greens Emerald still a fav
Linden a pale slightly spring yellow green a little grey
Lichen a greyed mossy green.
Caraf coffee greyish medium-dark
Mykonos Aegean deep blue bright
Acai purple blue[red blue]
Beaujolais bright wine -burgundy
Vivacious orchid med color pink-blue
Samba looks like a lipstick red
Koi tangerine a little towards burnt but brighter
Dark grey
Looks like the colors are light and dark greyed yellow greens,one bright green[Emerald}and blue-reds with one bright fairly pure blue.One bright yellow red {Koi}One dark grey and one brownish grey.So if you are looking for a basic fall color I'd say grey,accented with greens,bright blue,orchid.Not too many options for the Color Me Beautiful Spring-toned girls except Emerald and Mykonos Blue but the other palettes would find a lot of tones good for them.Just be careful of the blue-pinks,red- blues if you are not a Summer or Winter toned palette.The Tangerine Koi might be a little too bright for some Springs and Autumns and the Lichen a little too grey-olive.

I really like most of these colors, much more representative of winter colors than traditional fall colors. Winter jewel tones are my best, so the cools are deeps are much better for me than the warm browns that dominate fall fashion. And my closet is already full of acia!

I absolutely love the colors that have been selected - but the names! Turbulence??? Would you purposefully choose to wear Turbulence? The actual gray color is lovely - but the name really needs some work! You gotta love those NY creative types. Actually, they should get the OPI nail polish folks to come up with names - those can be very imaginative!

Turbulence, really, that isn't very appealing for a color to wear. Funny how color names affect us. I just bought paint for a bedroom and feel extra satisfied that the color had a pleasant to me name, gentle rain. Hope it looks as good as it sounds, lol.

So, um, who decides these are the "it" colors?

Sorry, I'm in crabby mood, but I don't see these seasonal color proclamations as anything but marketing for Pantone, Inc.

I usually hate the Pantone colors, but this time around there's a great lineup of jewel tones (green, blue, purple, blue-red, fuchsia) and dark gray.

I know,When I figured out this behind the scenes power grab it really bugged me.But then I was thinking about all the color trends in history. Did you know the color MAUVE happened as an experiment side effect in a lab?But oh how the Victorians loved it-even the men.I love to hear about only certain kinds of women wore red or what was considered proper for a matron to wear before tea.Its really funny and is a clue into mindset in the past.So I think of the Pantone deal as a kind of forecast of the colors you'll find in RTW and fabric stores.I won't be wearing a tangerine pants ensemble but I'll understand and forgive someone who is.

The film Angels and Insects, based on the AS Byatt novella "Morpho Eugenia" is set in the period immediately after the discovery of the first synthetic dyes, (circa 1860) and the costumes are appropriately loud and gaudy.

Quote: carry
Ah, but it had its secrets. “Angels and Insects” is like the dark underside of a Merchant-Ivory film; in one scene, we visit a sunny, pastoral clearing in the woods, and lift up a rock to see the plump, slimy little slugs and larvae beneath, dining on each other.


Roger Ebert, reviewing the film
