Autumn in New York: Women's Pantone Colors

Top Pantone colors for women's collections picked by NYC designers for fall 2010.

Pantone’s most popular colors for fall reveal some surprisingly bright tones, including the leading women’s color for the season: Purple Orchid. “There’s still some concern about the economy, but designers are trying to incorporate color to generate excitement from consumers again,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, which surveys New York Fashion Week designers each season to find the most directional colors. “Designers did tell us that if their consumers are buying new items, they want to integrate it into their already existing wardrobe.”
