Pantone's 2014 Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

“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.”
Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute

 I must admit - I was a little disappointed when I first heard which color was the Pantone 2014 Color of the Year.  

I'm just not that into you, Lavender, ahem...Radiant Orchid….  

But hey, Pantone, I gave you the benefit of the doubt, did a little research, and was very pleasantly surprised by my findings.  

Here are some fashion houses that were ahead of the Color-of-the-Year-game and presented these pieces last September for Spring 2014 Ready to Wear and - quelle surprise! - I love them all...
