Long gone are the days of "radiant orchid," the lightish purple hue chosen as Pantone's hottest color of 2014. For 2015, it’s all about marsala, a rich, robust shade that’s flattering on nearly everyone and already heating up the red carpet.
“Much like the fortified wine that gives marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness,” explains Lee Eiseman, executive director of the PANTONE Color Institute in a press release. “This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”
“Flattering against many skin tones, sultry and subtle marsala is a great ‘go-to’ color for beauty, providing enormous highlight for the cheek, and a captivating pop of color for nails, shadows, lips, and hair,” adds Eisemen.
