Pantone Radiant Orchid Weddings 2014
“While the 2013 colour of the year, PANTONE Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the colour wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.”
Radiant Orchid works beautifully for wedding flowers and table settings, perfect when combined with a colour palette of purple and pink flowers.
“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
Radiant Orchid’s rosy undertones compliment the skin, producing a healthy glow. A real attention-getter, Radiant Orchid has already appeared on the runways during the spring 2014 fashion shows and is now making its way onto the red carpet.
It’s also a very flattering option for bridesmaids dresses and accessories.
A modern and surprisingly versatile shade, Radiant Orchid is a vibrant colour, making all who wear it feel more healthy and energetic. Blending both cool and warm undertones, it is an appealing shade and flattering to many hair, eye and skin tones.
Radiant Orchid Colour Palette
This multifaceted shade is seductive when combined with red, and pairs well with its sister shades of lavender, purple and pink, providing an assortment of lipstick and blusher options. It also acts as a brilliant finishing touch to nails.
Likewise, Radiant orchid’s light and vibrance is guaranteed to ensure it compliments and livens up a selection of neutral colours including grey, beige and taupe.
Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid re-energises almost any colour palette, and even works well with orange hues too!
