Every season, The Pantone Color Institute, Pantone’s trend forecasting and color consultancy, releases its ‘Fashion Color Trend Report’. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute stated that AW22 colors "contrast our competing desires for calm and comfort with energy boosting vitality, through a range of restful and restorative colors, in tandem with exuberant tones.” She went on to say that “As we move forward into an environment filled with contradiction, hues for AW22 enable consumers to move fluidly between a range of contrasting shades, allowing them to spontaneously express who they are and how they feel on any given day.” Here is how ten designers incorporated Pantone's seasonal colors into their fall runway collections.
