Are you excited about Pantone’s color of the year for 2012? If you haven’t heard about it yet then the color of the year for 2012 is Tangerine Tango, an energetic and spirited reddish orange hue to motivate us to move forward with flaming energy and fresh spirit. According to Pantone, this hue is warm, dramatic, seductive, friendly and energetic with a good mix of red and yellow making up it’s beautiful enticing color. Pantone is also teaming up with Sephora to present their first “Color of the Year” beauty collection featuring Tangerine Tango starting next year. This collection which will be available in Sephora stores starting March 2012, is a limited edition color collection consisting of eyeshadow, lipstick, lip gloss, nail polish and accessories. Are you excited?
We saw this bright energetic orange color on Spring 2012 runways and here are a few collages for inspiration to help you adopt this beautiful color for the next year.
Speaking of flame colors, have you seen Prabal Gurung’s new uniform designs for the Sephora’s cast with red accents? The beauty brand that hasn’t updated it’s cast costume since 2001, decided to give their uniforms a new creative yet functional spin and reached out to designer Prabal Gurung to design their new cast uniforms for them. Prabal Gurung’s designs reveal two choices for women that include: a black shift dress that can also be worn as a tunic paired with black trousers or a very chic fitted black trouser suit with red piping-like detail on the jacket. For men, it’s black shirt, black trousers and a black sweater with red color-block detail on the shoulders and arms. The tunic for women also has a similar red color-block panel detail that runs along the shoulders and arms, and underneath a pleated back as a peekaboo detail (see pic below). I love the shift dress and I think the back pleat is a very thoughtful detail that adds a lot of comfort, ease and flexibility while also appealing to our visual senses.
