The grass is Greener(y) where you water it – and it applies to fashion.
This year, we welcome a zesty hue of yellow green – Greenery or in Pantone language, 15-0343 — as 2017’s pick.
A whole lot bolder and invigoratingly brighter compared to French liquor Chartreuse and last year’s sweet pair, Rose Quartz and Serenity, the “refreshing and revitalising shade” is also set to symbolise new beginnings.
According to Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, she says, “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalise, Greenery symbolises the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”
Look forward to seeing the colour from the runways to home, restaurant interiors and, of course, fashion.
Thank you Pantone for giving us the answer to every dress code dilemma. And while we wait for it to hit the racks, here’s how you can ease into it with other shades of green.
