Pantone Color of the Year

Pantone sees it like this: “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it. Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”

You will see it in wall paper, sofas, home accents, as well as cosmetics and fashion men’s and women’s wear and accessories.

Seasonal adjustments of course exist. Pantone has a Spring 2012 Fashion Color Report at
