Spring 2012 color trends

Even as the fall collections left the runway, we were already looking to get a glimpse into the following warmer seasons. Yes, we’re talking about the foundation of any season’s collections: the colors and hues that underlie them, shape them, and eventually come to define them. And even though we’re still guiding you through spring’s and autumn / fall’s fashion trends for 2011, that doesn’t mean we can’t afford a slight deviation in the form of a long term color trend forecast for the spring / summer 2012 season.

Interfiliere are always the first to release their take on any season’s color trends, and for spring / summer 2012 it’s no different. As a part of the swimwear and lingerie industry the colors they reveal as having frequency and prominence are usually limited to their part of the fashion industry. While some of these colors may be dominant amongst spring 2012′s clothing trends, we should caution that there’s no guarantee of it. Unfortunately, at this stage Interfiliere have not released the Pantone codes for their analysis of the spring 2012 colours. However, reading from left to right and starting with the colour swatch above, they’re seeing the following colours as trends for beachwear and intimates. 

Wysteria, Asian Bronze, Shanghai Mist, Earth Anemone, Oxygen, Baby Doll, Marshmallow Rhubarbe Jelly, Babychick, Grape, Marsala


Lapis, Canary, Macaroon, Quince Petal

As color trend companies are want to do, Interfiliere have also grouped their color trends for spring 2012 into different moods. For the spring / summer season they’re seeing three distinguishable color groups: tender, earthy, and floral.
