So as 2013 draws upon us (Thank God, the world didn't end!) my cousin emailed me a couple of lovely articles on the new named 'Colour of the Year.' This colour is PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald. It is an emerald green that is predicted to come out in lots of different ways in 2013 such as in clothes, interior and beauty. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute commented: “The most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other colour in the spectrum. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally-appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.” As seen here The Duchess of Cambridge was ahead of the trend when in October she wore this Emerald Mulberry dress and looked lovely, as always!
Personally I love this colour, it is a lively, radiant, lush green. It gets me so excited to break out all the spring, summer clothes because although at the moment I am loving the winter greys and blacks I cannot wait to wear the bright colour my favourite season summer brings a long.
