Designers Pick the Color of the Season

Designers Pick Season's It Color (It's Not Radiant Orchid)



Pantone may have selected Radiant Orchid as 2014's Color of the Year, but right now designers are dreaming about a whole different rainbow of hues. That's because when we asked tastemakers like Jennifer Fisher, Jonathan Adler, and Misha Nonoo to pick the color of the holiday season, they came up with a festive list of rich and seasonal tones. Next year may be all about purple, but we suggest you do your holiday dressing (and shopping!) from another color spectrum.

Reds

"Red — a classic holiday go-to!" — Rebecca Minkoff
Our suggestion: Rebecca Minkoff pouch ($75)

"Bordeaux and gold." — Chloe Perrin, Perrin Paris
Our suggestion: Perrin Paris evening bag ($1,895)

"I might be a traditionalist, but I love red for the holidays. It's bright, festive, and warm." — Lauren Bush Lauren
Our suggestion: FEED backpack ($75)

Whites

"White is crisp, fresh, and clean — a good change to the darker hues usually donned during the holiday season." — Rachel Roy
Our suggestion: Rachel Roy dress ($129)

"I love Winter white all year round and even more so during the holidays. It’s a timeless classic, yet always fresh and festive for the season. Whether you opt for a little white dress or a tailored jacket, Winter white is modern and effortlessly glamorous." — Rachel Zoe

"Navy, cobalt, and sea salt." — Misha Nonoo, Nonoo
Our suggestion: Nonoo separates ($295 and $495)

Metallics
