What are the top color trends for Spring/Summer 2021?

After revealing the color of the year 2021, the Pantone Color Institute published a new trend report. This time is all about the top color trends for Spring/Summer 2021.

As it usually happens, the colors we see becoming popular in the fashion industry are often popping up in the interior branch as well. This year is no exception. By keeping an eye on the London runway as fashion designers introduced their new Spring/Summer collections, Pantone foresaw what are the color hues we are going to see standing out in the next months.

The palette comprises 10 standout colors + 5 core classics whose versatility transcends the seasons.

Whilst we are still living in uncertain times, we seek optimism. Pantone Color Institute’s experts are deeply convinced we can soak up on hope and enjoyment through the colors they have chosen to brighten the warm season.

“A range of floral hues reflective of gardens in springtime awakens our spirit, reinvigorating our interest in colour that inspires feelings of much needed optimism. Colours that are flexible and can work year-round, colours that amalgamate our desire for comfort and relaxation with energy and determination,” — said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

    Sono tutti colori molto belli e mai avrei pensato che Purple Rose rendesse una sensazione di armonia e tranquillità.
    Tra gli altri colori quelli che mi ispirano di più sono il Beach Glass e il Lava Falls
    Comunque ognuno di loro ha il suo fascino. Ciao Nadia

      È stata un po’ una sorpresa anche per me. Va comunque preso in piccole dosi perché resti elegante e fresco. Anche gli altri colori che mi hai scritto sono molto belli!
