Pantone winter forecast 2014-2015

I know we’re still in Fall/Winter 2013/2014, but for those of you who like to look forward and perhaps do a little planning ahead, I present discovery.  Discovery is Pantone‘s Winter 2014/15 cross the board colour forecast.

Pantone colour planner Fall/Winter 2014/2015

Discovery, so named as it explores the search of new thoughts, ideas, and visions, can be broken down into seven (7) colour schemes.

Uncovering colours:

Uncovering
colours: Tap Shoe (19-4004 TCX); Vanilla Ice (11-0104 TCX); Vanilla Cream (12-1009 TCX); Macadamia (12-0709 TCX); Eiffel Tower (18-5210 TCX); Pussywillow Gray (15-6304 TCX); Rose Tan (16-1511 TCX); Tannin (17-1320 TCX)

Uncovering … a soft, sheer, neutral scheme; classic and timeless, there is a certain romanticism and purity to the collection.  Uncovering brings to mind the materials used to decipher the unknown and inform the present.

Making colours:

Making
colours: Smoked Pearl (18-0000 TCX); Sandstorm (16-1235 TCX); Poinciana (18-1564 TCX); Aquarelle (15-4714 TCX); Jaffa Orange (16-1454 TCX); Arabian Spice (19-1245 TCX); Glazed Ginger (18-1154 TCX); French Roast (19-1012 TCX)

Making … a palette that is anchored to the page; very artisan-like with a deep respect for skills and materials.  Making is organized and curated to captivate the eye and invite the audience to enjoy the inventive process of making, building, colouring, collaging, stitching, and styling.

Essence colours: Graphite (19-3927 TCX); Feldspar (16-5815 TCX); Cameo Brown (16-1516 TCX); Italian Plum (19-2514 TCX); Golden Oak (17-1046 TCX); Saxony Blue (18-4225 TCX); Reflecting Pond (19-4326 TCX); Olive Oil (16-0847 TCX)

Essence
colours: Graphite (19-3927 TCX); Feldspar (16-5815 TCX); Cameo Brown (16-1516 TCX); Italian Plum (19-2514 TCX); Golden Oak (17-1046 TCX); Saxony Blue (18-4225 TCX); Reflecting Pond (19-4326 TCX); Olive Oil (16-0847 TCX)

Essence … is very cosmetic in nature.  Its contemporary warm tones are restrained, pasteurized and processed, homogeneous and emulsifying; while, at the same time, compactness is expressed through solid, uncontaminated uniform colours.

Breakthrough colours: Dusty Aqua (12-5506 TCX); Arona (16-4109 TCX); Mineral Blue (16-4712 TCX); Doeskin (15-1308 TCX); Swamp (15-6310 TCX); Black Iris (19-3931 TCX); Posy Green (18-5616 TCX); Forest Night (19-0414 TCX)

Breakthrough
colours: Dusty Aqua (12-5506 TCX); Arona (16-4109 TCX); Mineral Blue (16-4712 TCX); Doeskin (15-1308 TCX); Swamp (15-6310 TCX); Black Iris (19-3931 TCX); Posy Green (18-5616 TCX); Forest Night (19-0414 TCX)

Breakthrough … contains softer mid-tones that are contrasted by light and heavy colours that alternate between watery and parched.  Greens and blues emerge from the depths of ghostly, futuristic, and unfathomable landscapes.  This is a future that comes from the past — an extraordinarily complex future that is interconnected, heterogeneous, and attempts to be dynamically adaptable to all scenarios.

No Limits colours: Atlantic Deep (19-4726 TCX); Spectra Green (17-5335 TCX); Camellia (16-1541 TCX); Boysenberry (19-2431 TCX); Rococco Red (18-1652 TCX); Sunflower (16-1054 TCX); Campanula (18-4141 TCX); Breen (19-1034 TCX)

No Limits
colours: Atlantic Deep (19-4726 TCX); Spectra Green (17-5335 TCX); Camellia (16-1541 TCX); Boysenberry (19-2431 TCX); Rococco Red (18-1652 TCX); Sunflower (16-1054 TCX); Campanula (18-4141 TCX); Breen (19-1034 TCX)

No Limits … a symphony of elevated and voluptuous colour to create a beguiling ambience with a dramatic cacophony of hues that evoke an atmosphere full of vivid richness and blissful excess.  Not for the faint of heart, No Limits can be perceived as both adventurous and boldly glamourous.

Voyage colours: Green Sulphur (16-0742 TCX); Citronelle (15-0548 TCX); Forest Shade (15-6423 TCX); Pesto (18-0228 TCX); Fallen Rock (18-1108 TCX); Fir Green (18-0627 TCX); Golden Brown (18-0940 TCX); Bayberry (18-5315 TCX)

colours: Green Sulphur (16-0742 TCX); Citronelle (15-0548 TCX); Forest Shade (15-6423 TCX); Pesto (18-0228 TCX); Fallen Rock (18-1108 TCX); Fir Green (18-0627 TCX); Golden Brown (18-0940 TCX); Bayberry (18-5315 TCX)

Voyage … inspired by excursion and discovery, voyage is a journey through nature… An adventure land where mustard shades mix with green and turquoise reveal an absence of time and space.  Warm earthy browns, sulfuric greens, citronella, and fir tree greens are paired with volcanic grays and burnt browns.

From Beyond colours: Tawny Port (19-1725 TCX); Vivacious (19-2045 TCX); Byzantium (19-3138 TCX); Mesa Rose (17-1609 TCX); Burnt Orange (16-1448 TCX); Amethyst Orchid (17-3628 TCX); Fired Brick (19-1337 TCX); Acai (19-3628 TCX)

From Beyond … delves into a world of violet, red, lilac and burned brown hues, where the colours interweave and blend continuously in complex fluxes.  It reminds you of outer space and the vividly coloured nebulas of space, making for a mysterious palette.
