The Art of Color


Wondering how to accessorize color in your wardrobe this season? A fashion color report released by the Pantone Color institute has identified the top 10 most directional hues for Fall 2011. The organization surveyed New York Fashion Week designers including Chris Benz, Peter Som, MACKAGE, Tommy Hilfiger, Tracy Reese and many others to reveal their inspiration.

“Designers take a painterly approach to fall 2011 by artfully combining bright colors with staple neutrals, reminiscent of how an artist would construct a stunning work of art,” said executive director Leatrice Eiseman. “Much like a painter’s masterpiece, there is a certain romance to this season’s palette,” she added. Firenze Jewels has applied Pantone’s findings with our eye for on-trend jewelry and diamonds below:
