Emerald has officially been announced as the Pantone Color of the year for 2013!
Since Fall 2011, the jewel tone has been making an impact both on the runways and the red carpet. More recently for Fall 2012, emerald touched down on runways at Gucci, Lanvin and Kenzo. This lush green color that evokes life, liveliness and radiance can be seen everywhere for Spring 2013 notably at Michael Kors, Stella McCartney, and Christian Dior, where it was used to cut eyebrows and eyelids into jewels of their own.
Pantone said of their new favourite hue: “Most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. Also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity, no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.”
Since Emerald Green is now the new Tangerine Tango…how will you choose to rock this rich color?
P.S. Have no fear, “brights” are still going to dominate right along with Emerald.
