Each year, the Pantone Color Institute releases the Fashion Color Trend Report, timed to Fashion Weeks around the world. For the Fall/Winter 2018 New York Fashion Week edition, Pantone has named the top ten colors for men and women’s fashion. We’ve partnered with Pantone to curate a collection of Adobe Stock Premium images inspired by those selected hues.

“The Fall/Winter 2018 palette continues to show designers expressing the need for individuality, ingenuity and creativity though fashion,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “As designers and consumers alike continue to transition away from cyclical trends, and instead focus on self-expressive colors that evade antiquated seasonal structure, we are seeing very notable non-traditional choices, such as PANTONE 12-0740 Limelight and PANTONE 15-3510 Crocus Petal showing up in the fall/winter palette. Exploring nuances within color families and building off of them with new combinations and materials freshens and reinvents the color story.”
