Blue Iris Pantone Color of 2008
December 17, 2007,
Fashion and printing color authority Pantone has selected its “color of the year” for 2008: Blue Iris, aka Pantone 18-3943.
“Look for it artfully combined with deeper plums, red-browns, yellow-greens, grapes and grays,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. She said Blue Iris “best represents color direction in 2008 for fashion, cosmetics and home products.”
Eiseman added, “Emotionally, it is anchoring and meditative with a touch of magic.”
