Pantone Celebrates The Color Purple in 2014: Korto Momolu.com
Following on the heels of Emerald Green, Pantone’s most recent color debut has flown across the aisle to crown Radiant Orchid (Pantone 18-3224) as the reigning hue for 2014…and since vibrant color and maximum flow are staple characteristics in the Korto Momolu brand, I am more than thrilled to honor this gorgeous hue!
Pantone writes that Radiant Orchid is the prime multifaceted hue for spring 2014 and will work overtime into the fall season as well: “seductive when combined with red and pairs well with its sister shades of lavender, purple and pink which provides an assortment of lipstick and blush options. Radiant Orchid’s exuberance also acts as a brilliant finishing touch to nails.”
Take a look at my tribute to the color of choice, “Radiant Orchid” on Polyvore.com and who I believe inspired the look for Pantone’s 2014 selection (Can you guess?):
