The Pantone Colour Institute has included the shades of Mango Mojito, Aspen Gold and Lemon Verbena - all variations of yellow - in its official report of colours from the two major trendsetting events. “Looking ahead to the warmer months, these shades reflect empowerment and confidence, while providing an uplifting effect that will defi- nitely put a spring in our step come spring and summer,” Pantone says of the hues in its Fashion Colour Report. 28 OPTICAL PRISM | March 2019 From New York Fashion Week, Pantone says “you can feel the passion and excitement in the sunshine-inspired Aspen Gold and golden-yel- low Mango Mojito that animate the palette.” In London, the new complementary shade of Mango Mojito offered a “gentle touch of colour,” while Lemon Verbena added “a sweet and cheerful” atmosphere.
