Hot colours for spring

What’s the hot colour combo this spring? While rose quartz and serenity mPantone colour 2016ay have been named by Pantone as the colours of 2016, fashion designers seemed to have something else in mind. We’re not seeing a lot in these baby colours, rather, strong and bold prints are trickling in already.

Enter turquoise-green and eggplant-purple. We’re seeing a lot of these colours in spring collections, in very bright and imaginative combinations. Geometric prints are hot, too. And while florals are always anticipated for spring, I think we will see more bold geometrics, in fresh new ways.
