Our friends at Pantone have once again pulled together what they say are the ten most important colors in men’s clothing and accessories for the Spring season. This is based on last Fall’s fashion shows during which designers unveiled their Spring 2015 menswear collections.
The colors are diverse to say the least, spanning what seems like the entire spectrum. In fact, Pantone notes that it doesn’t remember a season like this when the men’s fashion trend colors differed so much from the women’s trend colors of the same season. But whereas Spring 2015’s color palette in womens includes mostly cool tones rather than brights or true primary, the mens palette is a mix of naturals and deeper colors.
The top ten trend colors in men’s clothing and accessories for Spring 2015 are: Dusk Blue (Pantone 16-4120), Glacier Grey (Pantone 14-4102), Treetop Green (Pantone 18-0135), Classic Blue (Pantone 19-4052), Toasted Almond (Pantone 14-1213), Woodbine Green (Pantone 18-0538), Sandstone Orange (Pantone 16-1328), Titanium (Pantone 17-4014), Marsala Brown-Red (Pantone 18-1438), Lavender Herb (Pantone 16-3310).
