Radiant Orchid : Pantone’s Color for 2014

December 6th, 2013

 

Say goodbye to Emerald and say hello to a purple hue. Yes! Expect to see a lot of this “Radiant Orchid” color next year because the global color authority ,  Pantone  Color Institute just announced  the  purple hue as it’s 2014 Color Of The Year. According to  its website, Pantone   searched   the entertainment industry, new art collections, popular travel destinations, and technology   for color influences . I’m not really a fan of the color because it is not flattering to my skin tone but I am sure a lot of people will love it. Below is a sample of an orchid dress worn  by Natalie Portman during an Oscar award   night .  She  looked very pretty like the very first buds you see on trees in the first days of spring.      Except for the fashion trendy men, I wonder  how the  ordinary boy next door   accept  this color for the clothes and apparel.
