Threads released this as the color of the year. What do you think about it?

I'm not a fan of any of the spring 2014 colors, so this isn't up my alley either.


Had to keep editing to make the link work. Sorry.

Actually, I really like these. I just bought a dress in that darker blue... how fortuitous! I wear these colors now, except for that yellow!

And it's better than last year's Emerald!

Edited: Although that purple on the Threads site really does scream POLYESTER, doesn't it? :)

I love the 'Dazzling Blue'!
I hadn't looked at the colors yet when I bought 7 yards in that color for spring dresses for my three girls. (They picked the color from swatches I had brought back for them)

Most of the colors will look better on my girls then me but the "Cayenne" color is calling my name. Maybe a colorblocked top for me in that color together with any leftover of the blue....

That'd look awesome Ahuva. I like the Cayenne too.

Where are you guys seeing the rest of the colors? The "Threads" link only gives me Radiant Orchid--but I like it!!
(I wasn't totally crazy about Emerald, either--but I definitely saw it EVERYWHERE!)

There was a link, but here it is again (not sure if Pantone is a bad site to link to or not).

I took it off because the first post corrected the link to Threads, and it just looked like I was being a jerk. :)

It looks like "Violet Tulip" is what used to be called "Periwinkle". I bet a lot of bridal parties will use it but it looks horrible in pictures! Half of the colors are "sad." I don't think I can wear any of them except the orange. But it's interesting to see what they think will be present for us to buy. I wonder if they take these colors from looking at the runway shows.
