Pantone has declared mimosa the colour of 2009. Pantone 14-0848, a bright sunny yellow!
It’s been so cold and grey that a yellow dress sounds good right about now. Something cheery. Maybe we need yellow. Things are happening that we just didn’t imagine, the world of luxury that seemed so permanent has changed. When icon fashion houses like Chanel lay people off what can we have faith in?. Everyday there is some fashion brand going into receivership. With everything in flux, yellow just seems safe. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® explains "The color yellow exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun, properties we as humans are naturally drawn to for reassurance. Mimosa also speaks to enlightenment, as it is a hue that sparks imagination and innovation."
You’re going to see lots of yellow for Spring 09!
