Last year we told you about Emerald green and how it served as a “symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity.” This year it’s all about Radiant Orchid… an “enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones that inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

“Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.”

Fashion designers including Emerson by Jackie Fraser-Swan, Juicy Couture and Yoana Baraschi, are incorporating Radiant Orchid into their spring collections and variations of this hue will carry into men’s and women’s clothing and accessories throughout next year.
