From the Pantone press release:
“Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.”
“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
Mind you, on others I can find it quite fetching.
I know I'm going to see this color everywhere this year. From makeup to shoes to dresses, it's applied to anything you can imagine.
Apparently it will show up at lots of weddings.
As a confirmed pink-phobe, I'll be avoiding it. What's your take on Pantone's color of the year?
