Fall 2012 Pantone Color Selections

Pantone’s 2012 Fall Color Selections were announced during New York Fashion Week in February, 2012.

From love potions and the magical hour of sunset to witches and warlocks, fantasy and illusion are inspiring designers this fall season. With an unexpected mix of darks, brights and neutrals, they cleverly manipulate reality to transport consumers to an enchanting place, free from the stresses of everyday life. From the PANTONE Fashion color Report Fall 2012

As the name implies, French Roast is the rich dark color of morning coffee. Although sunny yellow-green Bright Chartreuse is more reminiscent of spring and summer, it provides the perfect transition to the chill of autumn. The blazing orange of Tangerine Tango and sizzling pink of Pink Flambé bring heat to the palette.  Olympian Blue is a bold medium blue that pairs well with the cool gray of Titanium. A mellow, brownish yellow, Honey Gold suggests the soft muted rays of sunlight on a crisp autumn day. Ultramarine Green is a cool deep blue-green ocean hue. The serene muted purple of Rhapsody brings calm to the bold colors of this palette.  Pale lilac with soft pink undertones makes Rose Smoke a perfect contrast for Titanium or Rhapsody.
