As New York City kicked off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week last Thursday, Pantone unveiled its Fashion Color Report for Fall 2013. Featuring the top 10 colors for women’s and men’s fashion, the report is a comprehensive overview of designers’ use of color in the upcoming collections. The showcased designs express the varying moods of fall, using colors to create a range of sophisticated, structured, lively and vivid looks.
