In September 2010, Pantone released their Fashion Colou Report For Spring Summer 2011.
The release of the PANTONE Fashion Color Report coincided with New York Fashion Week. "The colours designers have chosen for the spring season present an interesting marriage of unexpected warm and cool tones," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
"By cleverly combining complementary colours, those that are opposites on the colour wheel, they have created a striking intensity in the palette. These unique colour combinations make it possible for consumers to pair existing pieces in colours traditionally associated with fall, with new favourites to punch up springtime wardrobes."
In addition to designer contributions, the report features commentary from fashion insiders and leading retailers discussing the geographic locations currently influencing fashion and design.
