Throughout the year 2012, the highly charged hue of Tangerine Tango fitted the bill for a year dominated by all the sporting action of the Olympics. But for 2013, Patone’s luscious green colour for the year promises a much calmer outlook for the months ahead. Belonging to the colour spectrum which represents balance, harmony and wellbeing, 17-5641 Emerald offer us all the chance to sit back, relax and take stock. Leatrice Eiseman executive director if the Pantone Colour Institute says, ” symbolically emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world”. “This powerful and universally appealing tone translate easily to both fashion and home interiors”. Designers (Gucci, sportmax, Burberry,valentino and stella McCartney) have championed shimmering tones of emerald in their new collections taking their lead from Patone’s.
Celebrities like Kelly Rowland, Kim Kardashian, Zoe Saldana, Emma Stone, Camille Belle, Josephine de le Bume and Katy Perry have all made frequent appearance on the red Capet in recent weeks. The shade is also set to be big news in the beauty world in 2013. Backstage at the S/S13 shows, Stella McCartney swept emerald green liner across the lower lash line, while modules at Christian Dior spotted shining green gems on their eyelids. Colour shy purists can also dip s toe or fingernail into the trend as every varnish brand worth it’s lacquer is offering an array of glittering green polishes within their new season.
