Pantone, the global authority on colour and provider of professional colour standards for the design industries, has unveiled its fashion colour report for AW14.
Released to coincide with New York Fashion Week, the report features the top 10 colours for women’s and men’s fashion.
The colours were inspired by everything from books, artisan crafts and photography to retro architecture and exotic landscapes.
Pantone executive director Leatrice Eiseman said: "This is a season of untypical colours – more reflective of the imagination and ingenuity, which makes for an artful collection of colours and combinations not bound by the usual hues for autumn."
“There is a certain mystique that is reflected throughout the palette, inspired by the increasing need for people everywhere to create an individual imprint,” she added.
