A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.
Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.” ~ Pantone
But, it’s not easy being green 😉
No matter your coloring, this is a tough shade to carry head-to-toe, so unless you’re SUPER brave, start small by looking for jewelry, accessories, and cosmetics to bring in in the spring.
Appropriately, Greenery was especially prominent on this next season’s runways, walking in various forms at SS17 Gucci, Kenzo, Bagelencia, Michael Kors, Zac Posen, and Cynthia Rowley.
In case you just can’t wear green, consider updating your art and interiors by bringing the freshness of the outdoors inside…
This isn’t your “green with envy” green, and unlike 2013’s color “Emerald” which symbolized luxury, Greenery taps into the opposing idea… minimalism through our most basic environment, Nature.
Nature’s neutral, PANTONE Greenery is a versatile ‘trans-seasonal’ shade that lends itself to many color combinations. As displayed in the palettes below, Greenery is paired with neutrals, brights, deeper shades, pastels, metallics and even the enduring presence of PANTONE Color of the Year 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity. These palettes easily cross over fashion, beauty, product and graphic design applications.” ~ Pantone
Ultimately, Greenery calls to mind all the positive “re-” words:
All the typical bold shades of poppy reds, sunny oranges, yellows, and hot pinks are present for SS17, but it’s the continuing influence of blues and greens that grab the most attention.
Through Greenery, creative design, in both fashion and interiors, is an outlet for all of these fresh beginnings.
