PANTONEVIEW Colour Planner - Spring/Summer 2009

“We celebrate the spirit of INDEPENDENCE. The promotion of INDIVIDUALITY has EMERGED as being SELFISH and SOLIPSISTIC. INDEPENDENCE IS A STEP AHEAD OF IT and is the other side of globalization”

INDEPENDENCE

For next season we are looking more at a state of mind rather than any one specific trend in color. We should begin to focus on things that are not so obvious but now have more of a hidden factor.

We see a return to a more gregarious approach to color, which is important since this attitude celebrates the individual and makes people feel good about themselves. From a sociological standpoint much of this has to do with the fact that many people today have taken a proactive stance in their personal contributions to the betterment of our world.

But with all of this rationalization also comes a feeling of irrationality. We are at the beginning of a new social trend with changes in values that will be with us for a long time. Much of this has to do with the emergence of new markets and how the perceptions from Dubai to India and from China to Brazil can be very different from what is familiar in the traditional western world.

This however has created a desire for emerging fantasy. People all over the world are taking notice and look at each other as a source of inspiration but interpret those inspirations to suit them-selves.

From both a creative standpoint and a business one we must cater our designs to a self-defining style that more people are now looking for.

CLASSIC-ISM

Inspired by its principles where art and architecture are characterized by regularity and restraint. We unpick the pale tints of classical fine art and use them to observe and obscure familiar shapes and forms. A modulated group of off whites represent the dense materiality of prosaic objects that are either enrobed or coated creating a landscape of unique uniformity. Shapes and shades are enjoyed in a new white world, explored here with substance and pith where deliberate preparation is all and nothing is left to chance.

A palette almost devoid of color except for the one medium blue accent emphasizes a feeling of restraint and austerity. The influence of art and architecture continues to fascinate us with non-colors being applied to modern technical materials. Finishing is key here and enables us to take these colors into a three dimensional position that makes them come alive.

SURREAL-ISM

The chains break and the ropes untangle. The locks burst open. At last the mind is free. It plunges forth laden with fuchsia, pink, pale grey and brown. This is what it wants to think, not what it’s told to think. Surrealism is the unencumbered whim. For every surreal act a thousand question marks stand guard, but for one season they retreat into the trees. Surrealism plays out like a childhood holiday.

Some of the words used to describe surreal are strange, weird, odd, dreamlike and strange and that is exactly what we want to see next year. Let’s forget about what is expected or ordinary and concentrate on things that make us want to take a second look since we’re not quite sure of what we have seen. This is intentional since surrealism plays with scale, combination and expectation.

INDEPENDENT-ISM

A palette based on confidence and originality we see this being geared towards artisans, creative types and those who like and do eclectic things. The colors are tart, bold, and gregarious and have a laughable quality. While color on color can be beguiling and magical the importance of white here is an essential backdrop for rare and enchanting combinations.

FEMAL-ISM

With the good chances that we may our first ever woman president the celebration of the female is relevant, positive and beautiful.

The influence of Georgia O’Keefe, flowers and retro glamour all lead toward the development of a palette of medium pastels. Unlike past seasons this level of color is clean and clear with a 1950’s reminiscent feel of retro golf and backyard barbeque hostess dressing.

FETISH-ISM

A carnal inspiration is the backdrop for this range of colors that captivate and seduce us. The attitude is one of freedom from strict rules and restraint since the look and feel is one of experimentation and eroticism. The application of color should focus on the shape of the materials and products we put them into.
