kitty: colour of the year

"A Color for All Seasons
Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it."
Pantone / fashion + Home


As today launches Mercedes Fashion Week(NEW YORK FASHION WEEK . FEBRUARY 10 – 17, 2011), I thought it would be appropriate to do a post about the official colour of 2011. So not sure how many of us will be wearing Honeysuckle this year, but the colours for spring and fall are certainly happy.

I really love the colours particularly for fall. Though I really haven't seen many yarn companies picking up these colours for the spring line up.

  1. Ick.. they can keep their "honeysuckle" shade to themselves! I really love the other colors though.. especially the Fall 2011 palette!

  2. Well, I love the Honeysuckle--a beautiful red.

  3. Oh my, what a gorgeous palette they have created for spring! I love them all... and thank goodness they are all in my wardrobe already. I would love a colorway with Honeysuckle, Beeswax and Silver Cloud... that would be heavenly.
