The Great Escapes: Top 10 Pantone Colors

Designers have set their sites on some far-off places for spring shades.

Escapism, a theme that first cropped up in Pantone’s most popular color schemes last year, is still going strong for spring. To try to help consumers forget their cares, designers tapped into hues often seen in Africa, India, Peru and Turkey. Honeysuckle topped the charts for the season’s leading color for women, followed by Regatta, Coral Rose and Beeswax. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said, “This time, everything is a little more exotic. It really has to do with everything that is happening in the world. There is still a lot of concern about the economy and life in general. It is very natural that designers would have those things in their thought process as they choose their colors.”
