Wedding Colour Trends for Autumn/Winter 2017
For wedding planner’s and venue stylist’s like myself, most of our wedding trend research is done the old fashioned way. We flick through piles of wedding magazines, pour over the newest wedding gowns on the fashion week runway’s and trawl wedding blogs and the internet for the next best thing in weddings.
However, from time to time we’re happy to let someone else do the hard work, which is why we look forward to Pantone’s bi-annual announcements, which are compiled from the newest collections from New York and London fashion week.
Having recently released their Pantone Fashion Colour Report for Fall 2017, the Pantone Institute of Colour have compiled their top colour predictions for Autumn/Winter 2017, taking their colour inspiration straight from the runway.
From comforting and refreshing hues to warm and dynamic autumnal shades reminiscent of nature’s changing seasons, Pantone’s Autumn/Winter 2017 colour palettes features the key colours we’ll be seeing, wearing and decorating with later on this year.
Take a look at the complete colour palettes of tonal colours for Autumn/Winter 2017 below, as outlined by the biggest colour experts in the business.
Colour Palette for New York
“Bookended by a dynamic Grenadine red and a tawny Autumn Maple, the New York colour palette leans more to warmth, “ says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute.
“While comforting, enveloping colours and ease are crucial to the seasonal feeling, standout shades include a pale pink Ballet Slipper, a refreshing Golden Lime and a bright Marina blue. These hues add a striking touch when paired with the classic autumnal shades of Navy Peony, Neutral Gray, Butterrum and Tawny Port.”
Colour Palette for London
Describing the London Autumn/Winter 2017 colour palette, Leatrice Eiseman said: “Led by a vivid Flame Scarlet, the colour palette for Autumn/Winter 2017/2018 is comprised of strong classics colours complemented by a few unpredictable shades for the autumn and winter seasons.”
“Unexpected combinations such as Royal Lilac and Otter Brown or Lemon Curry with Bluebell are eye arresting and create an unusual colour dichotomy.”
