This New York Fashion Week, Pantone’s Fashion Color Report got a whole new look.

Catering to the changing schedule of runway shows, with many designers showing “see-now, buy-now” collections as opposed to a traditional long lead production calendar, the semi-annual report was released post-fashion week and announced the top 10 trending colors in fashion, jewelry and accessories as seen on the runways. The report was compiled by Pantone reviewing runway shows each day during fashion week and identifying prominent collection colors, palettes and stories.

ā€œOne of the things that we saw this year, was a renewed sense of imagination in which color was appearing in context that was different than the traditional,ā€ said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. ā€œReminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature, our Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report evokes a spectrum of emotion and feeling. From the warmth of sunny days with PANTONE 13-0755 Primrose Yellow to the invigorating feeling of breathing fresh mountain air with PANTONE 18-0107 Kale and the desire to escape to pristine waters with PANTONE 14-4620 Island Paradise, designers applied color in playful, yet thoughtful and precise combinations to fully capture the promises, hope and transformation that we yearn for each Spring.ā€

Pantone worked with the CFDA to announce color trends in real time, as they were happening during fashion week.

Culled from the Pantone Fashion, Home + Interiors Color System,Ā this seasonā€™s colors ranged from a denim-like blue,Ā PANTONE 17-4123 Niagara, to aĀ foliage-based green,Ā PANTONE 18-0107 Kale, and showed a renewed sense of imagination in which color was appearing in context that was different than the traditional.
