Pantonehoneysuckle_large

The undisputed “authority on color”, Pantone, has released their Color of the Year for 2011. Enter Honeysuckle. “A brave new color for, a brave new world,” the pinkish hue is said to be a powerful color that elevates the psyche and wards off the blues. It seems a few designers, including Marc Jacobs and Prabal Gurung (and us – that looks at lot like our signature BurdaStyle pink if you ask me!), were a little bit ahead of the curve on this color selection, adding the bold pink to accessories and ensembles for Spring 2011. What do you think about their Honeysuckle selection? Will you use (or have you already) the color in your projects for 2011?

    I love it !!! Vibrant pink is my favourite colour, but I don’t like soft baby pink at all…. I plan to wear it forever!!!

    Pink is such a hard color for anyone over 16 and under 70 to wear. Don’t think I’ll be making any projects in honeysuckle.

    Love it! I can’t wait to make some dresses in this colour! I love that dress in the top left corner.
