Radiant Orchid Blooms as 2014 Color of the Year

In 2013 we were all Green with envy, but for 2014 Pantone - the global authority on color - announced yesterday that PANTONE® 18-3224 Radiant Orchid as the color of the year for 2014. The color is a captivating, magical, enigmatic hue - one that is a blend of fuschia, purple and pink undertones - which emanates great joy, love and health.  "...Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today's society" says Leatrice Eisman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. Last year Emerald was picked as the color of the year and was associated with growth, renewal and prosperity. The Spring 2014 runways definitely showed signs of the retro hue as shown at the Spring 2014 runway shows below.
