As mentioned in the Spring 2015 Color Report, Marsala is the Pantone 2015 Color of the Year - a “naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls.” The earthy warmth of Marsala blends seamlessly with the naturally inspired colors of this season's color report, from rooted neutrals like Dried Herb, Oak Buff, Desert Sage, Reflecting Pond, and Stormy Weather to bright pops of color like Biscay Bay, Cadmium Orange, Cashmere Rose, and Amethyst Orchid.
"Juxtaposition of color from opposite sides of the spectrum emphasizes poise and confidence on the runway. The Fall 2015 palette is rooted in multi-faceted, androgynous colors that can be worn to portray effortless sophistication across men’s and women’s fashion; it is the first time we are seeing a truly unisex color palette." - Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute®
