Pantone Picks Color of 2009

Warmth and optimism are poised to sweep the fashion world next year, as Pantone has announced the color of the year for 2009 will be Mimosa, aka Pantone 14-0848.

"The color yellow exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun, properties we as humans are naturally drawn to for reassurance," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. "Mimosa also speaks to enlightenment, as it is a hue that sparks imagination and innovation."

Pantone said the flowers of the mimosa tree, as well as "the sparkle of the brilliantly hued cocktail" are key to this color that "coordinates with any other color, has appeal for men and women, and translates to both fashion and interiors."
