Whilst surrounded by uncertainty in these indeterminate times, Spring/Summer 2021 colours for LFW highlight our need to immerse ourselves into a world characterized by colours that reflect hope and optimism, according to Pantone Color Institute’s colour experts. Combining a spirt of lightheartedness with functionality and flexibility, colours for Spring/Summer 2021 emphasize our desire for the pleasure and enjoyment color can bring to our lives.
“A range of floral hues reflective of gardens in springtime awakens our spirit, reinvigorating our interest in colour that inspires feelings of much needed optimism. Colours that are flexible and can work year-round, colours that amalgamate our desire for comfort and relaxation with energy and determination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
