Even before the first designer sat down to create an amazing collection for Spring 2015, Pantone’s color trends where set in swatches. Pantone Color Institute announced the 10 key shades that will constitute as Springs 2015 style palette, and it seems as if the season ahead will be a cool one. Spring 2015 will put an emphasis on the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum, taking a back seat and giving bold colors the more supportive role as an accent. Understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like-neutrals play to create a simpler time, nostalgic to retro delights, folkloric and magical worlds of tropical landscapes.
