Along with a denim blue tone: Niagara, primrose yellow and lapis blue, kale was on the list of ten trendy colours to watch out for according to Pantone Fashion Color Report Spring 2017.

Vitality, relaxation and the great outdoors are all inspiration for this latest report on colour trends for spring 2017.

Expect to see lots of blues that are both bright and pale, warm pinks and lush greens across fashion and homewares.

Laurie Pressman,Vice-President of the Pantone Color Institute, says “Reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature, our Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report evokes a spectrum of emotion and feeling.”

“From the warmth of sunny days with Pantone 13-0755 Primrose Yellow to the invigorating feeling of breathing fresh mountain air with Pantone 18-0107 Kale – designers applied colour in playful, yet thoughtful and precise combinations to fully capture the promises, hope and transformation that we yearn for each spring.”
