Pantone has released its Fall 2011 fashion color report, and it predicts an interesting mix of subtle earth and sky tones combined with a series of tropical brights. The women’s palette includes Honeysuckle, a rosy pink that’s Pantone’s 2011 Color of the Year. The men’s palette is similar, but features bright hues that are a bit deeper and richer. The report includes sketches and swatches from noted fashion designers.
