Each year Pantone put together a committee of colourists who develop colour palette concepts based on global research. They meet up twice over the course of the year to debate and ultimately pick which hue will be the 'new black' for the following year. The 2015 Pantone Colour is Marsala.
This maroon-ish hue is a sophisticated colour and translates well across several fields of design. Whether it be fashion, interiors or even cosmetics, this hue compliments many different surfaces and fabrics. The rich undertones of this colour make it perfect for fall. It is a timeless colour.
Celebrities including Taylor Swift, Emma Stone and Blake Lively, and Russian fashion editor Miroslava Duma have all successfully worn this colour on the red carpet - wearing brands such as; Gucci, Lanvin and Reem Acra. This colour suits many skin tones and complexions.
