Pantone Takes the Long View on Fall 2017 Colors With Focus on Autumnal Classics
After comparing designers' fall color choices in New York and London, Pantone Color Institute's executive director Leatrice Eiseman said what was really interesting was to see that "we are really more alike than not."
For the first time, Pantone’s fall Fashion Color Report is taking a global spin to reflect how influences on color and design spring from all over the world.
With an underlying theme of warmth and classicism, the top 10 colors found in New York and London reflect how the cocooning trend is enveloping many news-weary, sleep-deprived workers. Michael Kors, Delpozo, Simone Rocha, Derek Lam and Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey picked up the sentiment with some roomy silhouettes and cozy hues. Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman said, “Cocooning colors are something you just want to wrap around yourself and feel comforted. We live in a time when that’s what we’re looking for.”

Stella McCartney has been designing wedding looks for customers, friends, family — and herself — for years.
And now, leveraging the success of the dress she designed for the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding reception in May, McCartney is launching, Made with Love, a bridal line including eight dresses and an ivory tuxedo, reports @natalietheodosi . “I feel very protective over the bride, because I know what it was like when I got married, and for me to do my own wedding dress. There are moments that are so personal and private, so emotional and loaded with many different issues,” McCartney told WWD in an interview in June. “I think we are really blessed to have the emotional trust with a woman. She’ll come in and feel the love that we put into everything. What she chooses can be conventional or unconventional. It’s a personal experience.” #wwdnews
