Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute said that’s what pop culture wants right now. “People associate purple with creativity and originality —and those are very valued today.

  1. Justo: Radiant Orchid is an enchanting color. I think it is a great selection. I am curious about whether this shade will be popular during the fall and winter of 2014. I am glad they went with a pastel shade.


    1. Hi Sharon, thanks for your comment. We are in the same page about being popular next fall. Pink and its shades are so big already this season...
