TRENDS: Pantone's Color of the Year 2015 Marsala

Pantone released that their color of the year 2015 is Marsala. This is a dark red named for the red wine. It's from their Spring 2015 color palette, En Plein Air. You can read my report about this color palette, on Craft Test Dummies. This color palette is inspired by nature, through scenery and foods. The color palette is divided between womenswear and menswear, but Marsala is in both palettes.

As a fan of dark colors, this one is already in my wardrobe. It's a rich red that is classic for goth clothing, and looks elegant with my pale skin, where as bright red can be too strong. Though this color is intended for 2015, but feel free to break out your dark red clothing as a nod to Pantone's color choice. The upcoming season is about layering lush fabrics, prints, and textures. This color serves as a nice color pop that can be paired with the neutrals in the palette, Toasted Almond, Glacier Grey, Sandstone, and Titanium.

This release makes me want to break out my lush dark red velvet vintage Betsey Johnson dress and wear it tomorrow. Below is a sampling of fabrics, clothing, and accessories available in various shades of dark red. This also highlights some print, fabric, and style trends for the upcoming year. This color was shown in a few Fall/Winter 2014 collections with some overlap into Spring/Summer 2015. You should see more of the Marsala color pop up soon, as 2015 is weeks away.
