Pantone Lapis BlueLeatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, told the press upon release of the news that the choices invoked “a renewed sense of imagination in which color was appearing in a context that was different than the traditional,” that the hues “surround us in nature,” and that they ”evoke a spectrum of emotion and feeling.”

“From the warmth of sunny days with PANTONE 13-0755 Primrose Yellow to the invigorating feeling of breathing fresh mountain air with PANTONE 18-0107 Kale and the desire to escape to pristine waters with PANTONE 14-4620 Island Paradise, designers applied color in playful, yet thoughtful and precise combinations to fully capture the promises, hope, and transformation that we yearn for each spring,” she explained.

All the spring colors are here.
