Autumn (Fall) is a favourite season of mine, the cold is coming back and it’s easier to start dressing in layers again without breaking out into a profuse sweating fit not unlike one achieved with a vigorous workout (well at least it seems like that in the Southern Hemisphere). That’s enough of talk of sweat; what we’re really here to talk about are the colour trends for 2009. Today’s come courtesy of Pantone who have just released their color interpretation of the Autumn/Fall 2009 fashion trends.
The colours themselves reflect the tough economic times with a selection of an appealing pastel palette devoid of any of the overpowering statement tones we have seen in the past few years. The move away from the statement colours will help the clothes age at a slower rate and will help provide a safer purchase to allow a little more wear from your wardrobe during these times of economic instability.
The selection stays true to form of the past few years with a definite nature inspired overtones, but take a definite downshift from spring’s richer resort holiday inspired colours. Noted in the report is even though the palette is diverse with a broad spectrum of colours they should still hold up to create a cohesive combination, which we guess is up to the designer.
