a recent distraction led me to the pantone 2009 spring color forecast. seeing that it’s march already, i feel a bit unprepared, but i realize the fashion world likes to keep us on our toes. one of the featured designers at this years fashion week, tia cibani, was inspired by the canadian artist emily carr, and her “animated landscapes of trees and totems…” i’ve not heard of her before, but the designer’s description of her work quickly led me to google. i thought i’d share my findings with you:
i think the last image includes the most colors of this year’s spring season, according to pantone anyhow. i think emily’s muted tones better capture the mood of the current issues we’re dealing with, but i guess i can appreciate the fashion world trying to imbue a sense of positivity and opportunity… mimosa, anyone…?
