And The Colour of 2012 Is...


Yes folks, get those faux tanning mitts out - the official colour of 2012, as confirmed by colour-matching company Pantone, is Tangerine Tango, described by the institute's Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman, as “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it. Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”

It also looks hideous on pasty, in-need-of-a-long-holiday skin. So yes, as I was saying, fake bake ahoy.

Also described by Pantone as "a vivacious, enticing hue," the vibrant orange / reddish tomato tone popped up on many of the SS12 catwalks - across garments and accessories - including Tommy Hilfiger, Narciso Rodriguez, Oscar de la RentaDerek Lam, Matthew Williamson, Louise Gray, Amanda Wakeley, Jenny Packham and Alberta Ferretti.
