2015’s Must Have Color – Marsala
This year the must have color is reddish brown, named “marsala”, after the wine color. Every December panatone forecasts the most popular colors. They talk to designers in different fields to help predict the must have color.
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute® said: “Interesting on its own and a wonderful contrast for other hues, PANTONE 18-1438 Marsala serves as the foundation to the Spring/Summer 2015 palette. Sensual and bold, delicious Marsala is a daringly inviting tone that nurtures; exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind and soul. Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this robust shade incorporates the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness.” Some adjectives used to describe the color of “marsala” are: vintage, organic, sophisticated, natural earthiness, and hearty. This color is associated with healing and the power to repel harmful spirits.
