Pantone Projects Color Themes
April 6, 2009,
Pantone has released the winter 2010/2011 edition of the Pantone View Colour Planner, its cross-discipline color forecasting tool, titled "Mosaic," which showcases eight palettes for use in women's wear, menswear, active wear, cosmetics, lifestyle, industrial design and graphics.
Molecular: a mood that represents a vibrant and glowing theme built and organized around a mosaic, with faceted and unified parts with deep darks cast as positive and exciting;
Byzantine, which Pantone describes as recalling old mosaic shop signage, imperial clothes and palaces, and other architectural elements stripped of their historical context;
Urban Field, a botanical mosaic of macrobiotic tones, dehydrated and preserved greens, and toasted nuances;
Mimetic, which up close may appear to be a disorganized collection of pieces of color, but forms an organized image when seen from a distance;
Deconstructing/Reconstructing, giving new life to classic colors —navy, bottle green, pillar box red, ecru and mid grey — by blending them in innovative ways;
Neuro Networks, pairing the celestial and ethereal with high-tech or elegant raw aspects;
Multiple Identity, a subtle mutation of colors and textures. "Think of eye color after tears or no sleep, in bright sunlight or candlelight," explained Pantone.
Universe. Visions, featuring dynamic waves and veils of saturated, layered colors studded with starry accents, all set against a rich black backdrop.
