Move over Radiant Orchid, Marsala is here.
Pantone 18-1438, Marsala, was recently declared the 2015 Color of the Year by world wide color authority, PANTONE®.
As a result we can expect to see a distinct warming trend in the colors that surround us; everything from fashion, to media, to industrial design and home decor, will be taking on the rich, earthy tones of a fortified red wine... and the fairways and greens of the world's golf courses are no exception.
Just as Radiant Orchid, the outgoing COY made its golf apparel mark in 2014 ( Nike, Poodle JoFit, Daily Sports ) Marsala is sure to figure in 2015 collections, but while the former was distinctly modern; an icy-bright shade of pinkish purple, this year's choice is somewhat more, shall we say, muted. Some have called Marsala old-fashioned, dull... even... icky.
Well as my French husband often says, "les goûts et les couleurs ne se discutent pas" which roughly translated means, "individual preferences for taste and color are totally subjective", and to that end Marsala also has no shortage of fans...and besides you don't need to transform your entire wardrobe... or decor... to partake of the year's trendiest hue. Marsala fits into numerous color palettes as a perfect compliment.
I see Marsala on the golf course with a color palette that includes burgundy, coral, navy and taupe... but that's just one of many that work. See what you can do with Marsala. After all it's color of the year for the next 12 months, you may as well have some fun with it.
