Fashion News: PANTONE goes Green for 2013

         PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald.
Every December we wait to see the new PANTONE color for the next year (well maybe just us fashion folk). For 2013, "you've got to be" Emerald green that is. The official PANTONE color announced today is 17-5641, Emerald. So why emerald? The press release said, 'Emerald, a vivid verdant green, enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight as well as promoting balance and harmony.' Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, stated, "The most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum...Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today's complex world." What's funny is that green has been growing on me this year, so I look forward to incorporating more of the color in 2013. Bye bye Tangerine Tango. And hello emerald (which might be us girls new best friend).
