Here Comes the Sun

Pantone just released its Spring 2010 Color Report (Fashion Home ) in time for yesterday's opening of Fashion Week in NY. Color themes for the spring include warm brights paired with neutrals. Slightly peachy, brown undertones appear in all -- even the classic navy of spring is warmed up a notch.

What was most intriguing from the report was the influence of travel on designer's interpretation of color. Destinations such as Istanbul, Japan, London, Morocco all inspired colors of the collections showing this week.

As well, fantasy seems to be playing a role. Obvious escapes such as the beach and the reliable fashion inspiration of "safari" were cited by designers. On the more playful, whimsical front, movement influenced designs cite Degas ballerinas and the Mad Hatter's tea party as sources of inspiration.
