It's been a while now that we are into a yellow & green mood. Not obvious colors, because they don't suit us all, especially when you have a pale skin.
Yellow connects with the light in us and challenges to set change into motion. Green and in particular the hues linked to army green ask to choose to "live" or "destroy", to "love" or "hate" ... It seems new fashion colors are confronting us to finally take change serious and make the choices needed to create a stable future.
We are inspired by nature, creative still lifes that underline one's personal taste or the wear and tear of materials and objects, showing "the signs of the times".

A light, yet radiant yellow and minty green in combination with creamy whites and light beige, bring us in a “springy mood”.
Lovely to use as solids or as a ground for light summery designs with accents like orange, ripe fruits such as raspberry or blueberry in combination with turquoise-blues that mix well with denim.
For the main colors we choose the following pantone references: Yellow 13-0648 TC, Stone 17-1516 TC, Light minty green 16-6318 TC, Sand 14-1210 TC. Of-course a nice white can't be missed in this range.
For accent colors we suggest to work around Berry 19-2428 TC, Orange 15-1058 TC & Indigo 19-4030 TC
Shiny fluid materials up to gauzy crinkle cottons in this palette will work well for home & interior but especially for fashion.
Within the fashion field we see influences varying from romantic, bohemian & hippy inspired dresses up to functional sports- & rainwear; in a mix and match, a style that has everything in it to become the favorite for a cool festival outfit.
The upcoming khaki colors for fall, might be great to combine for a collection that has to cover the transition from summer to fall
For the dark Khaki we suggest Pantone 18-0615 TC and for the lighter option 16-6216 TC
