Spring It On: The Top 10 Pantone Colors for Women's RTW Spring 2010

The Top 10 Pantone colors for women’s collections chosen by New York designers for spring 2010.

Consumers crave color for spring — and designers are providing it. “The vibrancy of the top five colors [for women] — versus the neutrals we see toward the bottom of the ranking — show that designers are choosing optimism for the season,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, which disclosed the top 10 colors chosen by New York designers in the Pantone Fashion Color Report Spring 2010. “It’s a cautious optimism, however, because no one can ignore the elephant still in the room — the recession.” With consumers highly selective about purchases, they are looking for the fresh and new, whether it’s a few key pieces, or accessories to enhance their wardrobes.

Here, the Top 10 Pantone colors for women’s collections chosen by New York designers for spring 2010.
