09 colour

ossie clark ss 09

If I had to name a colour of them all which had almost no appeal to me is yellow. This is why I slowly raised my eyebrows when reading that the 2009 color of the year is a shade of yellow. But clearly there's more to it. We are talking here about a vibrant, powerfull and saturated hue. The kind that makes you want to get it closer so it can warm you up, from the outside to the deepness of your heart.That is why I am still toying a bit with the idea. There's not so much to think about, though. This yellow has the same attributes as any other strong colour. And it's beautiful. It expresses warmth, hope, light. Everybody needs some of these.

Pantone, the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, announced that PANTONE(R) 14-0848 Mimosa is the color of the year for 2009. It's similar to a crowning ceremony. Mimosa was chosen to represent the hopes for the new year. Plus, it coordinates with any other colour in the spectrum. Because it doesn't impose herself using force, but it grows on you bit by bit. What's even more appealing is that it is suited for multiple industries: textiles, interior decorations, sportswear, cars. It fits almost anywhere in so well. It's a given.

Sweet treats,


  1. I was admiring a bright yellow coat in the benetton and thinking it would be great to break the blackish-greyish winter monotony by wearing some bright summery colour!

  2. oh, yes, i can't wait for clothes in this color to pop out more often in the stores! xo
