Back to nature: This is the ‘it’ colour of the year for 2017!

Back to nature: This is the ‘it’ colour of the year for 2017!

Over the past couple of fashion shows, we’ve already seen designers experiment with the colour green.

Each year, Pantone – a global standard for colour communication – releases the ‘it’ colour of the year. And 2017 is all about ‘a refreshing and revitalising shade”. Announced earlier this month, the colour of the year for 2017 is Greenery – symbolic of new beginnings.

Last year, the firm had chosen two colours Rose Quartz and Serenity (shades of pink and blue) for this year, representing the two genders; this year though, it has gone for a more neutral palette that’s not only closer to nature but is also meant to represent the deep-rooted craving for freshness.

Historically, the colour – which is intended to reflect the current cultural climate – has influenced not only fashion, but also other trends such as architecture, food, décor, etc. The yellow-green hue takes off from the concept of environment, of course.

“There’s a growing desire to reconnect with Nature and what is real, and find ways to disconnect from technology. We need a break. We need to stop and breathe,” Laurie Pressman, the Pantone Color Institute’s vice-president, told Forbes. “(Greenery) is about unity and community—connecting to oneself and others and a higher purpose, Nature.”

Over the past couple of fashion shows, we’ve already seen designers experiment with the colour green, especially for their Spring-Summer 2017 collections. The most popular pairings have been with different shades of the colour, along with more subdued shades of grey, denim and chambray.

But that doesn’t mean you’ll wear green all year through. Here’s a list of the top colour trends predicted for Spring 2017 fashion:
17-4123 Niagara
13-0755 Primrose Yellow
19-4045 Lapis Blue
17-1462 Flame
14-4620 Island Paradise
13-1404 Pale Dogwood
15-0343 Greenery
17-2034 Pink Yarrow
18-0107 Kale
14-1315 Hazelnut
