Take a look behind the inspiration for Yoanaâ€™s Spring 2016 collection featuredÂ in Pantone’s Spring 2016 color report. Get a glimpse behind the scenes with Yoana’s inspiration!
This season we liked the softening of colors and the transition of cool Pinks as in classic Fuchsia Pink (PANTONE 15-2718) into a symphony of Lilacs such as Lilac Chiffon (PANTONE 15-2913), or cooler tones such as Sheer Lilac (PANTONE 16-3617) and Pastel Lilac (PANTONE 14-3812), as well as Violets such as Violet (PANTONE 16-3320), Lavender (PANTONE 15-3817) and Violet Tulle (PANTONE 16-3416). This intriguing palette of Violets and Lilacs looks particularly surprising and modern when accented with our favorite fiery Poppy Red (PANTONE 17-1664). Easter Egg (PANTONE 16-3925) and deep Periwinkle Blue continue this moody dusk to dawn palette into the Blue family. When contrasted with Black and White, the palette takes a graphic turn in illustrated floral prints or embroideries.
The spectacular August sunsets over the Hudson river; the Black and White reality of the city is engulfed by the all-powerful drama of nature. Pink and Violet clouds on the New York West Side sky are just as magical of a backdrop as any distant, exotic island paradise.
Cool tone Pinks/ Lilacs/ Violets/ Lavenders because of all their modern edge and eerie vibe.
Must-have Item For Spring 2016
A high-waisted Pink/Lavender tailored midi skirt with an impossibly high slit.
How do you use color to impart an emotion?
We choose a color based on its ability to move you, to sway you; a star color for the season has to feel new and a little subversive to the status quo.
