Radiant Orchid - Pantone colour of the year 2014

Radiant Orchid, Pantones colour of the year for 2014. 

"an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm." - Pantone marketing-speak.

Pantone officials picked a colour that sits almost opposite to last years Emerald Green, and settled on "Radiant Orchid", a soft rosy purple.

Seen on people like Michelle Obama and in designers like Max Mara, Marc Jacobs, Salvatore Ferragamo, Ermengildo Zegnahave's work, it has slowly been introduced to us throughout last year, and we can expect to see alot more of Pantone 18-3224 TCX in the year to come.
