Colors are an expression of the time we live in. We can see how color trends extend from house furnishings to what we wear. Every year, Pantone works with its panel representing global color leaders to select the color of the year. The Executive Director for Pantone team is Leatrice Eiseman, who leads the color team. This color sets the tone for the annual fashion shows.

2015 Color of the Year is Marsala. It is a fortified red wine color with brown undertones. The name originates from a city near Sicily called Marsala.

The brilliance of this color is its versatility. The fashion forecasters believe this color will find its way in both men and women fashion wear. The earthy tone will make this color perfect for layering and texture based clothing items. The sophistication this shade brings with it will make it a wardrobe must have for all. 

2015 might see a deluge of wearables in the market. The sophistication of this color might make it a perfect color for our next smart accessory. We recommend to keep an eye out for this color and stock it up.
