Color of the Year


I was looking through some of the Fall Collections from NY Fashion Week and noticed a heavy-handed trend of blues, greys and blacks. The blue was quite lovely and while contemplating it's hue, I remembered blue was Pantone's Color of the Year and realized it made its presence known in fashion this year, albeit, mostly in a more muted version.

Even Rachel Zoe got in on the blue action at Marc Jacobs.

***Update: On my new Mac with the kickass graphics card, the color of the year image swatch is showing a little more purple than it did on my other computer! Ooops! Maybe the color wasn't as hot this year in fashion as I previously thought it was. :) Wow..I feel as though I have been colorblind until now!
