Pantone definitely is an authority when it comes to colour as is fashion. It’s one of those chicken/egg debates. Who influences whom? Does the fashion industry set the trends or is the fashion industry stealing trends from the mega cool hipsters out there? Either way, hope you like to Tango.

And of course, Pantone offers giftable goodies in the newest “it” colour.
